20.2 Clock Synchronization

Check out this interactive demonstration which allows you to synchronize clocks. Use the buttons to select a clock and the slider to set the initial time on that clock. Try to set the initial time on every clock so that after each one receives a flash from the origin and starts ticking, all clocks end up with the same reading. (Note that the units along the horizontal axis are light-seconds.)
