As per theory of special relativity the time in moving frame R' is supposed to run slowly compared to the stationary frame R. But isnt the stationary frame R moving wrt frame R' in the opposite direction. For an observer in stationary frame R', R would be moving with the same velocity wrt to it and wouldnt he think time will dilate in R which is the moving frame according to that observer in frame R'? So if time dilates in both, wouldnt both measure the same time? This has been confusing me for a while though I understand the equations which Lorentz framed to satisfy the absolute velocity of flight.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
