An inertial frame S’moves at a speed of 0.65c in x direction with respect to a  frame S. Further, x= x’ = 0 at t = t’ = 0. Two events are recorded. In frame S,  event 1 occurs at the origin at t= 0 and event 2 occurs on the x axis at x= 3.0 km  at t= 4.0 us. According to observer S’, what is the time of (a) event 1 and (b)  event 2? (c) Do the two observers see the two events in the same sequence or  the reverse sequence?

In an inertial frame two events occur simultaneously at a distance of 3 m apart. In a frame moving with respect to the laboratory frame, one event occurs later than the other by 10s. By what spatial distance are the two events separated in the moving frame? Solve this problem in two ways: first by finding the Lorentz boost that connects the two frames and second by making use of the invariance of the spacetime distance between the two events.
