1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A meter stick moves parallel to its length with speed v = 0.6c relative to you. a. Compute the length of the stick measured by you. b. How long does it take for the stick to pass you? 2. Relevant equations t = to*γ L = Lo/γ 3. The attempt at a solution Part a was easy enough, simply using 1m for Lo and v = 0.6c to get a contracted length of 0.8m. Part b, perhaps I'm overcomplicating things, but is it as simple as using the proper time as to = d/r = 1/0.6c and then using the time dilation formula? Or instead is it simply the contracted length divided by the speed?
