The Voyager 1 space probe, launched in 1977, is moving faster

relative to the earth than any other human-made object, at 17,000

meters per second.

(a) Calculate the probe's

. p

(b) Over the course of one year on earth, slightly less than one year

passes on the probe. How much less?

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\gamma[/tex]=1/[tex]\sqrt{}1-(v/c)^2[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I calculated the [tex]\gamma[/tex] but i dont know how to get answer (b)
