In other words, what is t? 15) 1 . 16) 1 − β2 The twin in the rocket ship feels a force but does not move in its reference frame: x = 0, so v c β= and γ= dt = γdt . 17) I wrote this in differentials because γ is function of velocity and the velocity of the space ship as seen from earth increases with time. We’ll find this velocity via the acceleration a. We know a = g and that a=a x ˆ= 1+ gt = 1− v 1− v2 c2 3 vu x ˆ=g 1− v2 c2 3/2 x ˆ⇔ c2 x ˆ⇔ −3/2 v2 c2 3/2 3/2 dv v2 =g 1− 2 dt c gdt = v2 c2 1− a dv ⇔ .
