Problem 2.2: Who emitted the signal first?
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
Three men, A, B, and C, are traveling on a train that travels by you at relativistic speed as shown in the animation (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). As B passes you, both you and B notice light signals from A and C arriving at the same time. Who emitted the signal first? Restart.
