I'm confused. If(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); t=γ*tand_{0}Lhow does the equation_{0}=γ*tx=v*thold forx, for constant velocity (Let_{0}=v*t_{0}tbe the time in the stationary reference frame and_{0}tthe moving frame, the same for length)? Thenvwould be equal toγ^2*v... Perhaps I'm missing something here.
