Textbook Problem

If a spaceship is approaching the Earth at 0.100c and a message capsule is sent toward it at 0.100c relative to the Earth, what is the speed of the capsule relative to the ship?

To determine

The speed of the capsule relative to the ship.

Explanation

Given info:

  • The spaceship is approaching towards the Earth with speed 0.100c .
  • The message capsule is sent towards ship.
  • The speed of the message capsule is 0.100c .

Formula used:

Formula to find the velocity of the capsule relative to the ship is,

  u=v+u'1+vu'c2

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

Calculation:

Substituting the given values, we get,

  u=0
