Just an issue I want to be absolutely clear about.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Scenario,

WE propell a rod of iron with a dimensions of 100 meters *1 meters through space with the 100 meter length perpedicular to the direction of velocity.

So the rod is traveling width edge forward. ( perpedicular to direction)

the question is :

Does the perpendicular length of our rod contract?

( if the velocity length is 1 meter and our width is 100 meters as per direction)

And also

Is there a table that is available to give contraction results vs veocity somewhere on the Net?

say contraction vs Earth meter at velocities like 0.1c, 0.2c, 0.3c etc etc

any help would be appreciated
