Why do faster moving particles go even farther that you expect?
Do particles live longer if they are moving very fast?

Physicists use a 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.
