I got this problem while I was combining relativistic equations:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For particle which is in motion,

v = l /t

or, l = v * t

or, l= v * t0/(1-v^2/c^2)^(1/2) ' Relativistic equation for time "t"

If the particle was light,

l =(c * t0)/(1-v^2/c^2)^(1/2) ' Because velocity of light is always c; c*t0 is equal to l0

or l = l0 / (1-v^2/c^2)^(1/2)

But, the actual relation is l = l0 * (1-v^2/c^2)^(1/2)

I must have been wrong somewhere. Where?
