Volume of a cube moving relativisticly fast

  1. Dec 10, 2007 #1
    The volume of a cube is Vo when it is at rest. Show that the volume of the cube when it is moving relativisticly fast is given by

    relativistic velocity = rest velocity*square root of (1-(v/c)squared)

    Do you want to find the relativistic velocity or volume? If you want to find the relaticistic volume, find the length contraction. The breadth and the height remain unultered.
