1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A meter stick at rest in S' is tilted at an angle of 30 degrees to the x'axis. If S' moves a speed beta = 0.8 with respect to S. a)How long is the the meter stick as measured in S ? b)What angle does it make with the x-axis? 2. Relevant equations l=l naught/gamma 3. The attempt at a solution I have part a) as 0.72m. only parallel motion of meter stick will contract according to frame S. to find length in S frame I took 1m*cos(30)/gamma to see how much meter stick contracted relative to motion and it was 0.52. and took the answer to this and used pythagorean to get .72m( sqrt((.52)^2+sin^2(30)) , which is the total length observed in S. this has to mean that the answer in part b is 30 degrees because we assumed sin 30 degrees when I used the pythagorean in part a). Am I correct?
