What is a simple Definition of Lorentz Contraction, or Lorentz force? The reason I ask is because Albert Einstein was once photographed in front of an equasion written L = mc2 instead of E = mc2 I was wondering what the value L could stand for IF it was not a mistake. I thought it might mean Lorentz. What are other Physics constants represented by the letter 'L'? (What could L stand for in a Physics equasion?) A form of energy? A quality or quantity of spacetime? A certain type of field? If a physicist sees the term L in an equasion, what does it mean to him? Many Thanks! Best Wishes and God Bless!!! Jack D
