Question Answer Choice b  6.93
years:
Excellent work! You got it. All it takes is
realizing that the time for the
mover by the stationary
frame, t, is 8 years. The
time for the mover by the
mover, t_{o},
is what we want to determine, and the relative velocity is
50% c, or 0.50 c.
The work I did is shown below and should have been
similar to yours!
