15. The proper time is not measured by clocks in either frame S or frame S 0 since a single clock at rest in either frame cannot be present at the origin and at the event. The full Lorentz transformation must be used: x 0 = γ ( x vt )a n d t 0 = γ ( t βx/c ) where β = v/c =0 . 950 and γ =1 / p 1 β 2 / p 1 (0 . 950) 2 =3 . 20256. Thus, x 0 =( 3 . 20256)
