    Hi,

    Given length contraction, shape is relative. Is volume also relative?

    Yes.
    The volume of a rectangular prism is the product of its dimensions. If a rectangular prism is moving in a direction orthogonal to two opposite faces, one dimension will shrink but the other two will stay the same.
