🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Dantchev's class at UCLA.

Solution: Santiago stands on the ground as Miriam flies directly toward him in her spaceship at 0.5c. She fires a small rocket directly toward Santiago that flies at a speed of 0.8c relative to her spaceship. According to Santiago, the speed of the rocket isA. 1.3cB. faster than c but slower than 1.3cC. cD. faster than 0.8c but slower than cE. 0.8c

Problem

A. 1.3c

B. faster than c but slower than 1.3c

C. c

D. faster than 0.8c but slower than c

E. 0.8c
