If the particles velocity changes with respect to the S’ frame, then the velocity in the S frame is also change according to dv = dv = dv u+v ? uv 1 + c2 1 + uv c2 1 dv 2 γ 1 + uv c2

udv c2 (8)

The time in the S’ frame is t , so the time in the S frame is given by t=γ t + ux c2 , (9)

so the time change in the S’ frame will give a time change in the S frame as follow dt = γdt The acceleration in the S frame is given by a= a 1 dv = 3 dt γ 1 + uv c2

If the S’ frame is the proper frame, then by de?nition the velocity v = 0. Substitute this to the last equation, we get a (12) a = 3. γ Combining Eq.(3) and Eq.(12), we get a = 5. Eq.(3) can also be rewritten as dβ g = 3 γdτ γ dβ g = 2 1?β c c β 1? β2 = gτ c (14)

Part B. Flight Time 1. When the clock in the origin time is equal to t0 , it emits a signal that contain the information of its time. This signal will arrive at the particle at time t, while the particle position is at x(t). We have c(t ? t0 ) = x(t) ? c t ? t0 = ? 1 + g t0 2 ? t= 2 1?

When the information arrive at the particle, the particle’s clock has a reading according to eq.(19). So we get c gτ t0 2 ? sinh = g c 2 1? 0= 1 2 c

c As τ → ∞, t0 = g . So the clock reading will freeze at this value.

The particle’s clock reading is then sent to the observer at the origin. The total time needed for the information to arrive is given by c g c = g c t= g c τ0 = g t= The time will not freeze. Part C.
