Suppose that you are at the top of a (rigid) rocket which is half a light
year tall. If the rocket is accelerating such that your proper acceleration
What is the proper acceleration at the bottom of the rocket?
This is one of the equations given:
alpha B = (alpha f c^2)/(c^2 - delta alpha f)
It seems that delta alpha f is the difference in accelerations. I can't find any equation that uses the distance. Is it OK to use the distance in this one?
