Problem 2P

Problem 2P

• Albert is piloting his spaceship, heading east with a speed of 0.90c. Albert’s ship sends a light beam in the forward (east-ward) direction, which travels away from his ship at a speed c. Meanwhile, Isaac is piloting his ship in the westward direction, also at 0.90c, toward Albert’s ship. With what speed does Isaac see?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 2 P:

Step 1 of 1:-

Here, we have to find with what speed the light beam will pass his/ Isaac’s ship which was emitted from albert’s ship.

Albert’s ship is moving towards east with a speed of 0.90 c.

Isaac’s ship is moving westwards with a speed of 0.90 c.

The light beam will be moving in the opposite direction of the Isaac’s ship.

So, Isaac will observe the speed of light as “c”, because the speed of light is same in all inertial reference frames.
