Problem 2 An atomic clock, emitting 100 neutrons per second is given to an observer A on earth. A similar clock is given to an observer B on a (stationary) rocket which is side-by-side A. The rocket then (instantaneously) accelerates to 3/4c. 1 Initially, just after the acceleration, how many neutrons per second coming from B’s clock

Unformatted text preview: will A detect (assuming he can detect all of the emitted neutrons)? 2 How many neutrons per second will B see coming from: a. B’s clock b. A’s clock 3 The rocket then travels for 1 minutes (as measured by A) and decelerates to rest. As-suming acceleration/deceleration happens instantaneously, how many neutrons will have been emitted by a. A’s clock b. B’s clock during that time? 1...
