Ah! I should have thought of that. It's a problem in Griffith's EM chapter 12. They want the percent error using Galilean vs Einstein velocity addition for two things moving 5mph and 60mph. I guess it's to show this is a non-relativistic speed? Kind of ridiculous if you ask me.
Thank you for...
I'm finding the percent error in a S.R. problem and getting a really small number. How can I find the exact percentage? This is the result that needs to be simplified:
6.7x10^(-16) / (1 + 6.7x10^(-16))
If I do an order of magnitude approximation, then the bottom becomes 1, but that will...
