Derive the Lorentz transformations for and .

Hint: See the comment following Equation .

We have to derive the Lorentz transformations for and .

To derive the Lorentz transformations we have the below equation:

As we know that

and

Then,

Next,

To get a number for t, we need to simplify the indicated component of the equation and then return it to the same equation.

To find the value for t, we'll now substitute values in equation (1).
