**Abstract:**

This paper, via the application of the Special Theory of Relativity, provides a physical and mathematical solution to (i) the value of the velocity of light, (ii) the contraction of the length of a rod in motion in the direction of its length with a relativistic velocity, and (iii) the Ehrenfest Paradox concerning the contraction of the circumference of the perimeter of a spinning disc.

SRT is completely erroneous since it is based on the wrong kind of transformations: they have lost the scale factor characterizing the Doppler effect. First, Lorentz considered a more general form of transformations (with a scale factor), but then he, and also Poincare and Einstein equated it 1 without proper grounds. Their form was artificially narrowed, the formulas became incorrect. This led to a logical contradiction of the theory, to unsolvable paradoxes. Accordingly, GRT is also incorrect.
