Lorentz Factor Formula

Fixed Frame and Moving Frame

The diagram shows the fixed frame in 3-dimensional view, with 3 directions x, y and z respectively.

Consider the Moving frame where x’ is moving with the primed frame with the velocity v in the x


The reference frames coincide at t=t’=0.












\(\beta =\frac{v}{c}\)


\(\gamma =\,Lorentz\,factor\)


\(\gamma =\frac{1}{{{\sqrt{1-\frac{v^{2}}{c^{2}}}}}}\)
