Question

The fictional rocket ship Adventure is measured to be 50 m long by the ship’s captain inside the rocket.When the rocket moves past a space dock at 0.5c, space-dock personnel measure the rocket ship to be 43.3 m long. Part A The rocket ship Adventure travels to a star many light-years away, then turns around and returns at the same speed. When it returns to the space dock, who would have aged less: the space-dock personnel or ship’s captain?

1. Complete question:

Part A:) The fictional rocket ship Adventure is measured to be 50 m long by the ship’s captain inside the rocket.When the rocket moves past a space dock at 0.5c , space-dock personnel measure the rocket ship to be 43.3 m long. The rocket ship Adventure travels to a star many light-years away, then turns around and returns at the same speed. When it returns to the space dock, who would have aged less: the space-dock personnel or ship’s captain?

Part B: What is the momentum of a proton traveling at 0.62 c ?

a)Who would have aged less=The Captain would have aged less

b)

Explanation:

From the question we are told that

Length measured by captain

Speed of rocket past tje space dock

Length measured by space-dock personnel

a)

Generally time moves slower when moving at speed of light, due to time dilation or variation.

Who would have aged less=The Captain would have aged less

b)

Generally the equation for Relativistic Momentum  is mathematically given as
