See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Given Information

We have to derive the Lorentz transformations for and .

Step 2: Simplify

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).
