The Theory of Relativity - Misinterpretation of the Postulate of Constancy of the Speed of Light and Non-Existence of Equivalence Principle

Authors: Henok Tadesse

The origin of all Lorentz's ether theory and Einstein's relativity theory is the constant c in Maxwell's equations and the null result of ether drift experiments. In this paper, it will be shown that it is the phase velocity of light that is constant c independent of source and observer velocity. The group velocity of light behaves in a more conventional way: it is independent of source absolute velocity, but depends on observer absolute velocity. Relativity theory has already been disproved because absolute motion has been decisively detected by many experiments such as the Miller, the Marinov, the Silvertooth, the Roland De Witte and the CMBR experiments. The group velocity of light has also been shown experimentally to vary with observer velocity. The counterintuitive constancy of the phase velocity of light is something that should be just accepted as a law of nature. It is rooted in the reality that there is no medium of propagation for light waves. This paper also shows that the beautiful thought experiment of the equivalence principle turns out to be wrong. The equality of inertial mass and gravitational mass has its root in two of the longstanding mysteries in physics: what inertial mass is and what gravity is.Inertial mass and electrical self inductance are not only analogous, but are fundamentally the same phenomena. The velocity of a car cannot change instantaneously for the same reason that the current inside an inductor cannot change instantaneously. Just as the magnetic field of an inductor cannot change instantaneously, so does the magnetic field of the electrons, protons and neutrons of the car material. Gravity and electrostatic force are not only analogous, but are fundamentally the same phenomenon. Gravitational force is a slight difference between electrostatic attractive and repulsive forces. It follows that both inertial mass and gravitational mass depend on the same quantity: the total(not net ) amount of charge in an object.
