On a Starship, which travels at 0.93c, dinner is served between 8:15pm and 8:45pm, according to the clock on the ship. How long is dinner served according to stationary observes on Earth watching the ship on a video monitor?

2. Relevant equations

I believe the equation for time dilation to be

t'= t √ 1 - v^2/ c^2

I am sure as i do not fully understand time dilation

3. The attempt at a solution

t'= t √ 1 - v^2/ c^2

t' = 8:15 pm

v=0.93c

c=300 m/s

is this correct so far?

i need help continuing on with solving the question

Thankyou!
