Default What is the time dilation for an object travelling at 1/10 light speed?



If person A is stationary, and travels at 1/10 the speed of light or 1 second by A's timer, then what will Person B's timer say?

I got .995 seconds but I don't think it's right.

This is actually not homework fyi. I'm way out of school.
