Length Contraction | Special Theory of Relativity|

In this video lecture I have discussed about the Length Contraction.¬† To understand it the basic information about the two transformations (Galilean and Lorentz) are important. It is based on the basic concept of Frame of References, here two frames S and S’ are considered. S’ frame is a moving frame with respect to the S and moving in the positive X direction with the relative velocity v. O and O’ are two observer in S and S’ frame respectively, and P is any event that occur in S’ frame. here¬† we have consider the rod of length l0 that is placed in a moving frame, its length appear l in S frame. By using the Lorentz transformation I have shown here the relationship between the l and l0. The two different observations of the two observers.
