Mike - Let me give you some advice. In the future When someone posts a question as simple and as easy to answer as I just did, i.e.

*What's the "CADO Equation"?* I recommend that you do one of three things.

1) State that the equation is the one given in post #1, i.e.

Originally Posted by **kiwiheretic** CADO_H (time) = CADO_T (time) - v ( meters/second) * L (metres)
"meters / second * meters" does not equal "time" |

2) Write down the expression of the

*CADO Equation*
3) Post a link to a web page where the

* CADO Equation* is written and/or defined.

Please don't direct me to a page where I need to read an two rather long paragraphs which contain nothing I need to or want to know. All you had to do was write down this

*CADO equation* that you defined and that was it. I.e. you should merely and simply posted the following;

The CADO equation is
CADO_T = CADO_H - v * L
where
CADO_T denotes the traveler's conclusion about the home-twin's age, when the traveler's age is t.
CADO_H denotes the home-twin's conclusion about the home-twin's age, when the traveler's age is t.
v is their current relative speed, according to the home-twin, at the given instant t in the traveler's life, with v taken as positive when the twins are moving apart
L is the distance from the home-twin to the traveler, at the given instant t in the traveler's life, according to the home twin (the asterisk denotes multiplication.)

Then I wouldn't have had to find the thread you referred me to, find the post in the thread that you referred me to and then read it, the first two paragrpahs of which are useless to me since I didn't have to know them to find the definition of the equation.

For the life of me I can't figure out why you responded as you did other than not wanting to be as thorough as I recommend you be.
