Clocks on a spaceship moving at high speed relative to the earth run more slowly when viewed from

The relative clock speed formula is a function of the velocity, or speed, of an object moving with respect to another. If you are traveling at 100 km/h and your friend is standing still on the ground next to you, then when you look down at your watch it will appear as if time has slowed by 50%.

The relative clock speed equation can be expressed mathematically as: [(distance in meters)/(time in seconds)] x 100 = (relative time) This may seem like a simple concept but it was one that took scientists years to develop. In 1887 Albert Einstein first showed that time slows down for objects moving near the speed of light.

He did this through his famous theory of relativity which states that time and space are part of a four-dimensional continuum. It was 1907 when Einstein published his first paper on special relativity, the idea that all observers should see the same laws of physics but from their own point of view or frame of reference.

This theory has been proven by experiments such as those conducted in 1972 with atomic clocks flown around Earth while others stayed at home: to us they were out there for just over seven hours, but to them only two hours passed because moving objects slow down according to some mysterious force called “time dilation” (the slowing down is proportional so an object traveling twice as fast would go through its journey in half the time). This means that if you travel close enough to speed
