http://home.orange.nl/kuip3148/phys1.JPG [Broken] Not exactly homework, but a problem I found in my lecture notes. The train is moving at a constant speed 0.5c. Question b asks what the length of the train will be then at t = -1. From what I understand, this suggests that length contraction depends on the distance the object is away from an observer? So at t = -5 the length contraction would be different?
