# Special relativity (time dilation) Calculator

## Calculates the time dilation of a body moving for some time with some relative velocity with respect to the observer. | ||

- Purpose of use
- To find the time dilation between going at the speed of light for 8.6 years and being on Earth for [how many years (is what I'm trying to calculate.)]

- Purpose of use
- Satisfying my curiosity.
- Comment/Request
- Thank you for making this! Different time input units would make it more user friendly. A reverse calculator from the perspective of the observer would also be useful.

- Purpose of use
- There is a line from a Chicago song "Does anybody really know what time it is?" It occurred to me that the Earth is moving at a pretty dizzying speed in orbit around our sun, our galaxy, and wherever the galaxy is going in a handbasket... So our sense of time must be off a bit. :)

- Comment/Request
- You should have a converter to put the seconds into days and the days into years.

- Purpose of use
- Mathematical curiosity
- Comment/Request
- If one person spent one year in one spaceand only one minute passed in another,

How many days passed in one Second?

- Purpose of use
- Curiosity
- Comment/Request
- I am 16 years old and my dad is 53 years old. Suppose he was in a rocket and orbiting around the Sun at the speed c-1 m/s ( only one m/s less then the speed of light). My question is : for how long would he need to travel if he was going at speed of c-1 m/s so that both of us would be same age when he comes back home to Earth.
