Is our intuitive notion that velocities simply add. as in Section 3-8. completely wrong?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution

Step 1 of 1

The intuitive notion that velocities simply add does not apply for speeds moving comparable to light. In fact, the notion is altogether incorrect but is a very good approximation when v < . 10c. Einstein showed that since length and time are different in different reference frames, the correct formula for velocity is
