Abstract

A formula for the transformation of phase velocity between two inertial observers is given. This is a correction of the formula provided by R. A. Bachman in Am. J. Phys. 57(7), 628–630 (1989), in which the transformation of the phase velocity perpendicular to the relative velocity of the two frames was incorrectly stated.
