Can anyone please explain why time becomes slow for a person while travelling with speed of light pertaining to normal observer watching(In general words)?

The first thing is that no material body can reach the speed of light in vacuo. But a body can reach a speed close to that of light.

The second thing is that in special relativity, the faster you move through space (relative to a reference frame) the slower you will move through time (relative to that same reference frame). And this can be calculated as:

Remember to wrap math in \( ... \) or \[ ... \] to ensure proper formatting.`2 \times 3`

`2^{34}`

`a_{i-1}`

`\frac{2}{3}`

`\sqrt{2}`

`\sum_{i=1}^3`

`\sin \theta`

`\boxed{123}`

\[T'=\dfrac{T}{\sqrt{1-\tfrac{v^2}{c^2}}}.\]

Where \(c=\text{speed of light}\);
