Note that in the system K the length is defined at

system K. This again illustrates that simultaneity is only a relative concept.

Note that in the system K the length is defined at

**equal**times t. The fact that this isnot at

**equal**times in the system K' is not relevant for the definition of length in thesystem K. This again illustrates that simultaneity is only a relative concept.
