Two Experimental Consequences of the Theory of Gravitational Relativity

Authors: Joseph A. O. A.

Two experimentally verifiable implications of the expressions for mass of a test particle and gravitational potential on flat spacetime in a gravitational field of arbitrary strength, in the context of the theory of gravitational relativity (TGR) are derived. The first is the existing expression for the shift in perihelion per revolution of a planet round an assumed spherical Sun, derived until now on a proposed curved spacetime in a gravitational field in the context of the general theory of relativity (GR), with excellent observational support in the case of the planet mercury, which is re-derived in a more compact and more straight forward manner on flat spacetime in the context of TGR. The second is a set of new (hybrid) forces of nature namely, gravi-electric, gravi-magnetic and laser-anti-gravitational forces, which arise when a capacitor (with electric field of extremely large strength between its plates), an electromagnet (with magnetic field of extremely large strength between its pole pieces) and a sphere containing very high energy radial laser beams respectively, each of which is safely enclosed in a box, falls freely towards a gravitational field source on flat spacetime in the context of TGR. Each of these forces is repulsive and opposes the gravitational attraction on a body towards a gravitational field source. While the applications of the gravi-electric and gravi-magnetic forces in achieving anti-gravitational thrust lack any prospect, there is a good promise for the use of the laser-anti-gravitational force to control the weight (or effectively the inertia) of a body (without engine power or any other aid) in the gravitational field of the earth or a host planet.
