66. (a) According to ship observers, the duration of proton flight is ∆ t 0 = (760 m) / 0 . 980 c =2 . 59 µ s (assuming it travels the entire length of the ship). (b) To transform to our point of view, we use Eq. 2 in Table 38-2. Thus, with ∆ x 0 = 750 m, we have t = γ ( t 0 +(0 . 950 c )∆ x 0 /c 2 ) =0 . 57 µ s . (c) and (d) For the ship observers, ±ring the proton from back to front makes no di²erence, and
