What Happens When Things Go Near the Speed
Advanced Analysis: Deriving the formula for g
Why do faster moving particles go even farther that you
Do particles live longer if they are moving very
relativistic correction factor, which they represent by the Greek letter
gamma (g), to calculate the
distance. You can derive the formula for g by
analyzing the Fermilab and Monte Carlo data.
Consider a different type of
- Examine a plot of the lifetimes vs. the decay length of the mesons.
- Determine the shape of that plot.
- Use the mathematical form of the plot to derive g.
