Handy Video Explaining Time Dilation & Length Contraction In Relativity

If you're sometimes confused by understanding Einstein's theory of relativity in terms of length contraction and time dilation as I am, this handy video gives you a nice visual representation to understand these two mind blowing phenomena.


  1. Very cool. I didn't think the first minute or so was that helpful, but the diagrams they had after that were really neat.

  2. A simple step by step analysis of motion will lead you to fully understand Special Relativity, and produce all of the equations for Length Contraction, Time Dilation, the Transformation Equations, and the Velocity Addition equation. Watch playlist at
