comment What are the consequences of relativistic angular velocities?
@Raindrop Given the disc set up for the Ehrenfest paradox, I'm wondering if my question has an answer aside from "there cannot be a rigid rod like you describe at the relativistic limit of angular velocities."

@Raindrop Right, I noticed the paper you referenced, but it doesn't help with the specific questions I have: How would the geometry of the rod appear to an observer as one converges to c? What are the consequences of this to, say, electrons in a solenoid?

@user1664196 Yeah, I'd be happy with whatever the limiting speed is for angular velocity (there must be one, right?).
