**Spoiler:**

The box [imath]0\times50\times1[/imath] fits inside a [imath]1\times1\times1[/imath] box so yes it is possible if you allow the box to have a volume of zero.

Well the limit is only true if [imath]x \to +0[/imath] but if [imath]x \to -0[/imath] then it whould be [imath]-\infty[/imath].

Edgar Hoover is a space alien, that William Shakespeare came from Uzbekistan, or even that the sky is polka-dotted. (See appendix A for a proof that Wins...

If that is indeed your question the the answer is never. The length of the craft (in the direction of the speed) wont de...
