When you multiply the time in a moving frame by ?, you get the longer (dilated) time in your fixed fame. When you divide the length in a moving frame by ?, you get the shorter (contracted) length in your fixed frame. A passenger on an interplanetary express bus traveling at ?v = 0.99?c takes a 5-minute catnap, according to her watch. Show that her catnap from the vantage point of a fixed planet lasts 35 minutes.
