Unformatted text preview: K ; 3) from K 00 to K 000 moving with velocity u with respect to K 00 . (a) With the help of the formulas derived in the Home Assignment #1 (problem 3) show that the frame K 000 is at rest with respect to K if u equals to the relativistic sum ofv andV (as expected!). Prove, that u =V p 1v 2 /c 2 ˆ xv ˆ y . Hint: ﬁrst ﬁnd the relation t and t 000 . (b) Although K 000 is stationary with respect to K their axes do not coincide, i.e. frame K 000 is rotated with respect to K . This is known as Thomas precession . Calculate the Thomas precession angle φ . (c) Study limits v,V << c and v,V → c ....
