Please help me with this SPECIAL RELATIVITY problem! DUE SOON! It has something to do with TIME & SPEED. How long is the exam in minutes?
Spacecraft I, containing students taking a physics exam, approaches the Earth with a speed of 0.700c (relative to the Earth), while spacecraft II, containing professors proctoring the exam, moves at 0.240c (relative to the Earth) directly toward the students.
