The accuracy of the Michelson - Morley experiment was such that a relative velocity of 106 cm / sec would have been seen ( i.e. , one - third of the above estimate ) . No fringe shift was found . Since the original work of Michelson the ...
Thus there exists a triply infinite set of equivalent reference frames moving with constant velocities in rectilinear paths relative to one another in which all physical phenomena occur in an identical manner .
We now show that the contraction of lengths in the direction of motion is a more general phenomenon which applies to all relative motion . Consider a rod of length Lo at rest parallel to the z ' axis in the system K ' of the previous ...
