Hi.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If two light clocks are put on a rocket at rest and then accelerated to relativistic velocities with one of the light clocks parallel to the direction of motion and one perpendicular, will one clock continue to measure the rate of change of time in the rest plane while the other one measures a different time?

If instead grandfather clocks were used, would the result be the same?

What about mechanical clocks (i.e. with cogs of a certain orientation)

Any responses to my wondering are appreciated.
