Question

The Starship Enterprise is traveling away from Epsilon Prime at 0.95c. The

Enterprise launches a shuttlecraft, that is moving at 0.80c relative to the Enterprise, in the

forward direction. The shuttlecraft launches a probe moving in the forward direction at

0.70c relative to the shuttlecraft.

a. What is the velocity, in terms of the speed of light, of the shuttlecraft relative to Epsilon Prime?

b. What is the velocity, in terms of the speed of light, of the probe relative to the Enterprise?

c. What is the velocity, in terms of the speed of light, of the probe relative to Epsilon Prime?

A
starship moving toward Earth with a speed of 0.850c launches a
shuttle craft in the forward direction. The shuttle, which has a
proper length of 12.5 m, is only 6.55 m long as viewed from Earth.
What is the speed of the shuttle relative to the starship?

The Starship Enterprise returns from warp drive to ordinary
space with a forward speed of 56 km/s . To the crew's great
surprise, a Klingon ship is 150 km directly ahead, traveling in the
same direction at a mere 21 km/s . Without evasive action, the
Enterprise will overtake and collide with the Klingons in just
about 4.3 s . The Enterprise's computers react instantly to brake
the ship. What magnitude acceleration does the Enterprise need to
just barely avoid...

A 740-kg two-stage rocket is traveling at a speed of 6.40×10^3
m/s away from Earth when a predesigned explosion separates the
rocket into two sections of equal mass that then move with a speed
of 2.30×10^3 m/s relative to each other along the original line of
motion.
Part A: What is the speed of each section (relative to Earth)
after the explosion?
Part B: What are the direction of each section (relative to
Earth) after the explosion?
a) both away...

Problem 10:
Suppose a spaceship heading directly away from the
Earth at 0.55c can shoot a canister at 0.25c
relative to the ship. Take the direction of motion towards Earth as
positive.
Randomized Variablesv1 = 0.55
c
v2 = 0.25 c
50%
Part (a) If the canister is shot directly at Earth, what
is the ratio of its velocity, as measured on Earth, to the speed of
light?
μ/c =
50% Part (b) What about if it is shot directly...

Q. If I am in a spacecraft traveling at 35 km/s
relative to Planet Hala, and from the spacecraft I shoot a laser
light beam forward at a speed of 300,000 km/s relative to me,
a.) how fast is the light traveling relative to the Planet
Hala?
b ) how fast is the light traveling relative to my crewmate Jo
who is also on the spacecraft?

1. In one inertial reference frame, an electron is observed
traveling with a velocity of magnitude v in the positive
x-direction, where v is 0.6c. What are the momentum and total
energy of the electron in that inertial reference frame in terms of
v and the rest mass of the electron? What are the speed, momentum
and energy of that electron as measured in a reference frame that
is traveling at a velocity of magnitude v/2 in the positive
x-direction?...

An alien spaceship traveling at 0.610c toward the Earth
launches a landing craft. The landing craft travels in the same
direction with a speed of 0.710c relative to the mother
ship (as measured by aliens on the mother ship). As measured on the
Earth, the spaceship is 0.280 ly from the Earth when the landing
craft is launched.
(a) What speed do the Earth-based observers measure for the
approaching landing craft?
c
(b) What is the distance to the Earth...

If light is traveling away from you with the electric field
pointing toward the ceiling (up), what direction is the magnetic
field pointing?
-to the left
-to the right
-up (toward the ceiling)
-down (towards the ground)

A 5 kg missile is traveling at a speed of 70 m/s away from the
testing facility when a predesigned explosion separates the missile
into two sections of equal mass that then move with a speed
of 30 m/s relative to each other along the original line of
motion.
a. What is the speed of each section after the explosion
relative to the testing facility?
b. How much energy was supplied by the explosion?

A spaceship with rest mass m0 is traveling with an
x-velocity V0x=+4/5 in the frame of the earth. It
collides with a photon torpedo (an intense burst of light) moving
in the -x direction relative to the earth. Assume that the ship's
shield totally absorbs the photon torpedo.
a)The oncoming torpedo is measured by terrified observers on the
ship to have an energy of 0.75m0. What is the energy of
the photon torpedo in the frame of earth?
b)Use convervation...
