Good job, paul. You have handed over the material that proves you
have no understanding of what the Lorentz transform is all about.
When B is not accelerating, the Lorentz transform says there is no way
to tell absolutely who is traveling and who is not. Time dilation
should be building up when A observes B as well as when B observes A.
The JAVA applet does not reflect what the Lorentz transform says. You
may want to decrease the acceleration distance to just 1 and increase
acceleration to 2 for a better dramatic effect. <shrug>
paul?s gross blunder: The mutual time dilation is building up when B
is not accelerating. The applet violates the principle of
Hopefully, paul remains ignorant on this one since else he would
remove the material just like he did with the rest of his blunders.
