the lost of the spaceship is their appointed 00 times the speed of light s O. We is equal to 0.800 times the speed of light and the velocity of the bullet You is equal to 0.9 mine nine times the speed of light And the speed of light is 3.0. They don't multiply by tend to de power it meter per second. All right, Well, from the lead Mystic, the lost tradition We know that it you is a call to weep. Lis, you prime weep, Lis, you prime divided by one Bless Ah, we times you prime divided by C square. And from this secret Jin, you prime can be wrecked. Unease New prime is equal to your minus. We divided by one minus. You re you divided by C square. Now let's plug in the values you prime is equal to well, you is zero point mine. Mine mine, See? Minus we Well, we is 0.800 times the speed of light. Divided by one minus. Well, uh, the u So we is zero point line 99 c multiplied by zero point it 00 times the speed of light divided by C square. Hence you prime is equal to zero point nine mine one meter for a second.
