Thread title reminded me of a funny moment I had in Physics class the other day.
I was calculating time dilation at speeds close to the speed of light and it wasn't working. I was getting so frustrated and yelling "you're wrong, why are you wrong?" other classmates were laughing but I didn't care, my calculator was wrong and I didn't know why.
Turns out I was using c = 3.0x10^8 m/s instead of c = 1 as in 1x the speed of light.
Boy did I look silly when I worked it out.
t0 = t1 x (1/(SQRT 1- (v/c)) or something I dunno Einstein's special relativity was last semester.
where v >0<1 and c = 1
