Problem

## Module 33: The Pole in the Barn: Quantitative Details - Problem 1

In this problem, you’ll work out a version of the Pole in the Barn Paradox involving a car and garage. Assume a race car is heading into a garage at speed $v={99 \over 101} c$. The car has length ${101 \,\textrm{ft} \over 10}=10.1 \,\textrm{ft}$ and the garage has length ${101 \,\textrm{ft} \over 5}=20.2 \,\textrm{ft}$.
