Special Relativity: Length Contraction

Jealous of a Prussian lab's work concerning  time dilation \text{ time dilation } an Irish-Sephardic consortium jointly publishes their findings into  length contraction \text{ length contraction }of alloy rods. Using the formula: Lobs=L1v2c2 L_{obs} = L \sqrt{1 - \frac{v^2}{c^2}} determine the contracted length observed (LobsL_{obs}) by the consortium when a copper-tin rod of uncontracted length (LL) of 67 inches 67 \text{ inches } was accelerated to a velocity (vv) of 0.50c0.50c.
