## Translational Symmetry and FitzGerald-Lorentz Contraction

**Authors:** Eric Su

Translational symmetry in one-dimensional space requires the distance between two objects moving at equal speed under equal acceleration to be constant in time. However, motion between the object and the observer is relative. Therefore, this distance is constant in time for an accelerating observer. Consequently, the length of an accelerating object is constant in time. The length of an object is invariant to its motion.
