    • Would the clock synchronization procedure have worked if we had fired baseballs from the origin toward the other clocks in the grid as opposed to sending out a flash of light? Argue one way or the other. (We will come back to this question in a subsequent Office Hour question.)

    • Well If the base ball is moving with constant velocity, then we can use this method else it will be a tedious calculation

    • If the base balls move at a know constant speed and direction, it works.

    • If you think of the baseballs as big photons there seems no reasons why this wouldnt work. You need a lot of them though.
