19. (a) The Lorentz factor is γ = 1 p 1 β 2 = 1 p 1 (0 . 600) 2 =1 . 25 . (b) In the unprimed frame, the time for the clock to travel from the origin to x = 180 m is t = x v = 180 m (0 . 600)(3 . 00 × 10 8 m / s) =1 . 00 × 10 6 s . The proper time interval between the two events (at the origin and at
