Clocks in Different Relativistic Inertial Frames
Jill is at rest, and Zak is on a train moving with velocity such that . Jill and Zak each have a set of clocks, and in their respective rest frames the clocks all appear to be set at , spaced 1 m apart. At the point in spacetime shown, the middle clocks are aligned at the same location and time . You can see how Jill perceives her clocks compared to Zak's clock and vice versa.
This Demonstration is based on an 8.20 MIT problem set, from Independent Activities Period 2020 under the instruction of Professor Markus Klute.
