Can length contraction be treated as a vector?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

E.g.

Suppose I am traveling 10 degrees north of east. Will my length contraction with respect to the east direction be cos 10 times the appropriate Lorentz transformation (with respect to the direction of motion)?

Thanks.
