Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was talking with my Physics professor the other day about something I could do in Special Relativity, since I'm only in Physics III and haven't experienced much of it, yet find it very interesting. He mentioned that I could do stuff with the Twin Paradox. Now I know the basic idea of the paradox, but he mentioned showing the mathematics of it because I generally wont see that in an introductory physics course, and I could handle it given I haven't been exposed to higher level mathematics yet. I was thinking however instead of just looking up how its done to take some time and figure it out myself.

So if someone could please explain the question surrounding the paradox so I have some sort of a starting point. I'm asking here because I can't seem to find a good form on the question when I searched the internet and I hope to find some form of clarity asking here directly. I would only like to have the question posted so I can start there and work my way to the end.

And of course if I solve (or think I do) the paradox I'll post my writing here for you all to see

Thanks for reading my post and hope you can help me in anyway

Adam.
