A subatomic particle with an average lifetime of 2.1x10^(-9)s at rest is placed into
A subatomic particle with an average lifetime of 2.1x10^(-9)s at rest is placed into a particle accelerator, and is made to move at 2.6x10^(8) m/s. Calculate the average lifetime of the particle in the accelerator.
