22.9 Clocks in Motion: Examples

Module 22: Clocks in Motion: Examples—Problem 2

This problem focuses on a simple scenario we introduced earlier in the course that allows us to understand explicitly how two observers moving relative to one another will nevertheless agree that the speed of the light fired from one of their lasers has speed $c$, independent of their relative motion. (You will see in the final part of the problem how one observer’s claim that the clocks in a moving frame are out of synchronization is central to the analysis.)
