Textbook Problem

Repeat the previous problem with the ship heading directly away from the Earth.

To determine

(a)

The velocity of the canister relative to the Earth, when it is shot directly at Earth.

Explanation

Given info:

  • The spaceship is heading away from the Earth with speed 0.750c .
  • The spaceship shoots the canister directly towards Earth.
  • The speed of the canister is 0.500c .

Formula used:

Formula to find the velocity of the canister relative to the Earth is,

  u=v+u'1+vu'c2

Here, u is the velocity of the canister relative to the Earth, v velocity of the spaceship, u' is the velocity of the canister and c is the speed of light.

Calculation:

Substituting the given values, we get,

  u=0

To determine

(b)

The velocity of the canister relative to the Earth, when it is shot directly away from the Earth.
