27.4. Set Up: The astronaut in the spaceship measures the proper time, since the end of a swing occurs at the same location in his frame. Solve: (a) (b) 27.5. Set Up: The instruments in the scram jet measure the proper time. The speed of sound is about Solve: and the time dilation effects are very small. 27.6. Set Up: The average lifetime measured in the pion frame is the proper time; Solve: (a) gives (b) 27.7. Set Up: The proper time is measured in the frame where the two events occur at the same point. Solve: (a) The time of 12.0 ms measured by the first officer on the craft is the proper time. (b) gives Reflect: The observer at rest with respect to the searchlight measures a much shorter duration for the event. 27.8. Set Up: The problem asks for u such that Solve: gives Jet planes fly at less than ten times the speed of sound, less than about Jet planes fly at much lower speeds than we calculated for u . 27.9. Set Up: A clock moving with respect to an observer appears to run more slowly than a clock at rest in the observer’s frame. The clock in the spacecraft measurers the proper time

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
