Hi, i asked this before but i think i found a clearer way to define my quesiton. As i asked in the title, does length contradicts as a result of time dilation? Or time dilation and length contraction are equal?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When we deal with formulas generally we use the vertical clock and derive time dilation formula than we use this time dilaiton formula in horizontal clock and derive the length contraction formula. So can we say length contraction is the result of time dilation, length in the direction of motion must contradict for consistency of the time dilaiton formulas, or can we equally say as a result of length contraction, time must be dilated?

Thanks for your help.
