## Main Question or Discussion Point

If a rod is traveling with a velocity 'v' and its proper length is [tex]L_0[/tex]

will the lorentz transformations given below hold true for the length contraction

[tex] L_0 = \frac {L} { \sqrt {1 - \frac {{v_x}^2} {c^2}}} [/tex]

[tex] L_0 = \frac {L} { \sqrt {1 - \frac {{v_y}^2} {c^2}}} [/tex]

will the lorentz transformations given below hold true for the length contraction

[tex] L_0 = \frac {L} { \sqrt {1 - \frac {{v_x}^2} {c^2}}} [/tex]

[tex] L_0 = \frac {L} { \sqrt {1 - \frac {{v_y}^2} {c^2}}} [/tex]
