Recall, from this chapter, that the factor gamma (?) governs both time dilation and length contraction, where ? 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. Assume that rocket taxis of the future move about the solar system at half the speed of light. For a 1-hour trip as measured by a clock in the taxi, a driver is paid 10 stellars. The taxi-driver’s union demands that pay be based on Earth time instead of taxi time. If their demand is met, show that the new payment for the same trip would be 11.5 stellars.

Solution 9P Step 1 : Considering the equation = 1v2 1c2 Now we need to find the dilated time From time dilation 2 2 t = 0 ( 1 v /c ) Here t =stationary time, 0 =dilated time Given that, t0= 1 hour , v = 0.5 c Substituting the values we get 2 2 t = 1 hour ( 1 (0.5...
