79. We refer to the particle in the first sentence of the problem statement as particle 2. Since the total momentum of the two particles is zero in S' , it must be that the velocities of these two particles are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction in S' . Letting the velocity of the S' frame be v relative to S , then the particle which is at rest in S must have a velocity of uv ' 1 = − as measured in
