Problem 3.7: What frequency does the moving twin observe?
Please wait for the animation to completely load.
One twin, Pink, remains on Earth while her twin brother, Green, travels the universe in a fast rocket ship. The animation shows everything from Pink's reference frame (distances are given in light years and time is given in years). Pink sends out light pulses at a given frequency. Restart. For each animation,
- What is the frequency of Pink's pulses in Pink's reference frame?
- What is the frequency of the pulses in Green's reference frame?
