Textbook Problem

Show that for any relative velocity v between two observers, a beam of light projected by one directly away from the other will move away at the speed of light (provided that v is less than c, of course).

To determine

To show:

That if relative velocity between observer is vthan speed of light sent from one observer to other approaches to c.

Explanation

Given info:

The relative velocity between observers is v.

The relative velocity of beam with respect to one observer is c.

Formula used:

Formula to find the velocity of the beam relative to the second observer is.

  u=u'+v1+vu'c2

Here, uis the velocity of the beam relative to the second observer, vrelative velocity of the observers, u'is the velocity of the beam with respect the first observer and cis the speed of light
