I understand the general theory of special relativity. But at what points do length and time dilation occur?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Independently of each other according to other events, or as relationsionship where one variable is related to another.

Is there a theoretical physicl situation where each would occur separately?
