Problem 37E

The 2-mile linear accelerator at Stanford University in California “appears” to be less than a meter long to the electrons that travel in it. Explain.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 37E This happens due to length contraction when the electrons in the linear accelerator have a speed close to that of light. 2 2 Length contraction is given by, L = L 0 1 v /c , L =0length at rest When, v approaches the speed of light, L (length observed by the electrons) will be reduced significantly.
