I'm backing Halc's track record on this.Incidentally, another "counter intuitive" thing is that computers get the maths wrong.But they do.Do you actually know what precision you are calculating to?
Yippeee, ha ha, at least you got one thing right halc
OK, I get itEinstein said - If you are moving with respect to me, we shall not agree upon the rate of flow of time, your clock runs slower than mine when you move and all processes that change with time change at a slower rate when observed in motion, one clock does not beat out time for the whole universe, a separate clock is needed for each state of motion, , , , I assumed the speed of an object is in motion, and its a process that changes with time, as in S=D\T, so must have a slower rate when observed in motion, , , a simple mistake
if B threw the ball in the same direction as its motion relative to A, then A would measure the ball as having a speed of 0.91738c relative to himself and 0.0514c relative to B. And if he threw it in the opposite direction, A would measure the ball as moving at 0.7862c relative to himself and 0.07978c with respect to B.
you got your figure of 0.0514 wrong
You don't appear to have even the rudiments of understanding of the theory
so I got it wrong and made a mistake. i now understand, to a stationary observer moving clocks run slow, but the moving clocks speed does not slow down, , happy now
OK, If you know so much, tell me why you don't hear the sonic boom when on board concorde, as it passes through 760 mph, using TSR
do the maths and show me why 0.05138 is wrong, , , ,at least I had a go and I forgot 1 relativistic value, I noticed you didn't attempt to break it down
sound moves away from its source, so those on board an aircraft do not hear the shock wave of the passage of the aircraft. Most of what is heard from the inside is not outside sound at all, but mostly the vibration of the craft itself disturbing the cabin air. There is no sonic boom to that.
Einstein had this thought experiment for around 10 years from the age of 14, and found the answer here , , , Einstein is in a space ship and he is holding a mirror at arms length, when his speed hits the speed of light, will his image in the mirror disappear, if his image disappeared in the mirror, he wouldn't have to look outside his ship to know he's moving at speed C, which would violate glalileo's principle - ha ha, ,and yes we know you cant move at the speed Cthat's why you don't hear the sonic boom when on board concorde, as it passes through 760 mph
im going back to making music
From the info from janus, I have corrected my program
