1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A rod of rest length 1,0m is moving longitudinally on a smooth table with a velocity 0,8c relative to the table. A circular hole of rest diameter 1,0 m lies in its path. The diameter of the hole as seen by the rod is going to be larger? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I guess no, because the length of a moving object relative to another at rest is smaller, from the contraction of length in relativity, but the asnwer is a larger length (1,667m). Why doest it happen?
