Step 1

For the given problem, the invariance of the space-time interval has been considered for the transformations that take place between the inertial reference frames.

Let there be a stationary inertial reference frame defined by S, whose space coordinates are defined as
(x, y, z) and the time coordinate is defined as t.

Let there be another inertial reference frame defined by S’, whose space coordinates are defined as (x’, y’, z’) and the time coordinate is defined as t’.

Let the inertial frame S’ be moving at a constant velocity v along the x direction with respect to the stationary reference frame S.

Let the interval in the S frame be denoted as Δs.

This “interval” is mathematically expressed as,

Step 2

Consider an event that takes place in the S frame defined by the space time coordinates (x, y, z, t).

The corresponding event will transform in the moving S’ frame as per the Lorentz transformations.
