3000 Å , the expected effect is a fringe shift of about one - tenth of a fringe . The

accuracy of the Michelson - Morley experiment was such that a

106 cm / sec would have been seen ( i . e . , one - third of the above estimate ) .

We now show that the contraction of lengths in the direction of motion is a more

general phenomenon which applies to all

length L , at rest parallel to the z ' axis in the system K ' of the previous section , as
