## Homework Statement

Suppose a rod measured in the S frame has a gradient of M.

The S' frame travels at v (along x-axis) relative to S. What is the gradient of the rod in the S' frame?

## Homework Equations

Lorentz tranformations

## The Attempt at a Solution

y'=y

x' = [itex]\gamma[/itex](x-vt)

so that m = y'/[itex]\gamma[/itex](x-vt)

This seems straightforward enough, which is why I'm worried. I'm not used to problems in relativity being this easy. Have I missed anything?
