Ok so I am ill and tired and certain this is wrong but I got
t^2= 1/(c^2-v^2)
Where c = 3 x 10^8 ms^-2

nearly there.
And now you square root both sides to get...

t = +- 1/(3x10^8)-v
10. (Original post by CheeseIsVeg)
t = +- 1/(3x10^8)-v
You get t = (sqrt)[1/(c2-v2)]

The amount of time according to the person on the train is simply 1/c, let's use capital T for this

So, the amount of time dilation (gamma) is equal to t/T which is...

Oh lol i forgot to square root the bottom hehe i promise you i did on paper over here
Ermmm
C/root(c^2-v^2)
Or something

Yes, but there's one more step.

The final answer is Gamma = 1/(sqrt)[1-(c2/v2)]
13. Cool to think that if you're travelling at say 80% of c that you age slower than your fellow earthlings. Still amazes me to this day that if you go on a superfast space journey then come back, you could be younger than say, your own grandchildren.
