Fresnel Drag Formula Derived from Hertz em

Authors: Robert Bennett

The Fresnel drag formula was verified by Fizeau’s water-channel test. SoL = c/n + v(1-1/n2) The theoretical derivation* offered herein supports: •Full aether dragging by fluids – speed of the fluid medium equals the speed of the entrained aether in the lab - Vm = Va •The Hertz EM laws, which replace Maxwell’s partial derivatives with total time derivatives, introducing thereby laws that are Galilean covariant(not Lorentzian)...and an additional parameter, a convective velocity ...of aether, Va. • The kinematic invariants of proper time, using distance and velocity to first order in v/c. •The Fresnel drag equation, as confirmed by Fizeau. The following uses Robert’s Rules of reasoning, based on the scientific method and philo-realism.
