Lorentz Factor Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

The Lorentz factor or Lorentz term is an equation, arises from deriving the Lorentz transformation equation which appears in several equations in special relativity. The Lorentz Factor is used to computes the relativistic effects at low speeds. It is generally denoted with the symbol Greek lowercase gamma (?) but sometimes the factor is written as Greek uppercase-gamma rather than ?.


? = 1 / (?1 - (V / C)2)

v - is the relative velocity
c - is the speed of light.
