In order to avoid general confusion caused by lack of basic knowledge of the STR, I by now commit to submit a reasonable explaination to questions, problems etc. concerning the Special Theory of Relativity posted below.

In order to get started-- try and consider the results of the following STR expressions;

Gamma Factor:

-1/2 (1-v2/c2)

Lorentz transformations:

-1/2 x'=(x-vt)*(1-v2/c2)



-1/2 t'=(t-vx/c2)*(1-v2/c2)

Velocity addition

u'=(u+v)/(1+uv/c2) [u'=(u-v)/(1-uv/c2)]

If thus one is in whole lost-- fear not. I shall be more than glad to respond even to the most fundmental questions.
