The
Henrick Lorentz produced a version in an effort to explain
why Light appeared to move at the same speed
no matter how fast one was traveling in relation to it,
and Albert Einstein derived it from his theory of
The Lorentz Transform regarding length ( L = L - L
_{0}- the length at rest. - L - the transformed length.
- v - (relative) velocity.
- γ(v) -
**Lorentz Factor**.
The 1 γ = —————————— √(1-v²/c²) - γ - Lorentz factor.
- v - velocity.
- c - speed of light in a vacuum.
In some discussions involving Relativistic Speeds, a speed is indicated by its associated Lorentz factor. Some examples;
