3. From the time dilation equation ∆ t = γ t 0 (where ∆ t 0 is the proper time interval, γ =1 / p 1 β 2 ,and β = v/c ), we obtain β = s 1 µ t 0 t 2 . The proper time interval is measured by a clock at rest relative to the muon. Specifcally, ∆ t 0 = 2 . 2 µ s. We are also told that Earth observers (measuring the decays o± moving muons) fnd ∆
