The Lorentz Transformation of Velocity Calculator will calculate the:

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

**Calculation Parameters:** All relativistic events are supposed to occur in vacuum; all systems are inertial.
