For the moving observer, it is the clock of the stationary person that appears to be running slower. The moving and stationary observers each believe that the others clock is the one that is running slow. Paradox statement of situation that seems to be contradictory to popular belief but which is true =t to1 v2c2 = to is the time measured by the moving observer = ( ) t relativistic time measured by observer =L Lo1 v2c2 = Lo rest length or the normal length of the object = ( ) L relativistic length measured by observer =m mo1 v2c2 = mo rest mass = m relativistic mass = E mc2...
