Velocity and proper acceleration

  1. Aug 13, 2008 #1
    Do someone have links to resources stating the relationship between IRF velocity function over time v(t) and the proper acceleration function over time a(t) ?

    IRF=Inertial Reference Frame

    I had tried to use materials inside Baez FAQ :

    http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/physics/Relativity/SR/rocket.html [Broken]

    and did the math in my blog :


    But it seems that equation 8 in that mathematical attempt is wrong.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I haven't had time to read your blog, but you might find posts #13, #14, #15 (and the correction in post #28) of this thread helpful. All except the second half of post #15 applies to both uniform and non-uniform acceleration (in a straight line).
