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

Suppose a stationary frame S' is observing frame S moving with velocity v=0.866c in the x-direction, and let points (4,0),(10,0) define the ends of a rod in S, so its distance is 6, but as measured from S' contracts to 3 because of the Lorentz factor gamma.

I'm unable to determine what the rod coordinates (?,0),(?,0) are in frame S'.

Perhaps S' would say the rod endpoints (4,0),(10,0) do exist in S, but the distance is really 3?

Thanks for your time! ;)
