Unformatted text preview: PHYS 260 Problem Set 2 i. I ‘ ‘ ‘ ‘ z I ‘ 1, j _1 A rocket ship of proper length 100 In travelling at 11/0" 0. 6 carries a radio receiver at its nose. A radio pulse is emitted from a stationary space station just as the tail of the rocket passes by. (a) How far from the space station is the nose of the rocket at the instant of arrival of the radio signal at the nose? (b) By space station time, what is the time interval between the arrival of this signal and its emission from the station? (c) What is the time interval according to measurements in the rest frame of the rocket? i 5 1 l i 3 '; s 1 a; é l'fla spaei fichm 4 4g, WM‘L éf ‘ l 7 ;_ i ‘; [A .m , liq \_ i: Wag.

    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.
