Lorentz Transformation

A set of equations which are used, in relativity problems, to transform measurements from one frame of reference to another moving with respect to each other along axis x.

where
v = velocity of (v', v', v') system along the x-axis [ms-1]
t = time [s]
c = speed of light = 2.998x108 [ms-1]
