Unformatted text preview: θ with respect to the wind. (The two arms are still perpendicular to each other.) Show that for equal arms of length l , the time diFerence for the two paths is approximately Δ t ( θ ) = v 2 lcos 2 θ/c 3 3. The space and time coordinates of two events, as measured in a frame S are as follows: Event 1 : x 1 = x , t 1 = x /c, y 1 = 0 , z 1 = 0 Event 2 : x 2 = 2 x , t 2 = x / 2 c, y 1 = 0 , z 1 = 0 (a) There exists a frame in which these events occur at the same time. ±ind the velocity of this frame with respect to S . (b) What is the value of t at which both events occur in this frame?...
