Let event A be the comparison of the O and O' clock at the origin and let the two clocks agree. Let event B be the comparison of the O' clock with the second O clock at Δ x = L.

### What students are saying

• 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.
