- Lorentz transformation of coordinates in relativistic events when the coordinates in the system S connected to the Earth and relative velocity of two systems are given.

**Calculation Parameters:** All relativistic events are supposed to occur in vacuum; all systems are inertial. All units are in metres, there is a handy "Speed of Light in a Vacuum to Metres Converter" under the calculator to allow conversion from speed of light to metres as required to complete your computations.
