The radiation pressure exerted by spherical waves is weaker.

The above diagram shows that spherical waves emitted by electrons must exert a radiation pressure which is weakened for a given angle. One can compare this situation to cannon balls damaging a fortress. According to Newton, forces are exerted in a sinusoidal way. So forces which are not parallel are weaker. This occurs because electrons in matter are not infinite in number. Any distance between each of them will produce an angle, which explains gravity. This also can be explained using Huygens' Principle. For instance, the laser Airy disk can be computed using differential calculus, assuming that Huygens' wavelets are infinite in number. However, a computer will show that when their number decreases, the energy ratio per wavelet is weakened. Because the laser window is equiphased, the on-axis energy ratio for short distances is well under 100%, but it is even worse while using less wavelets.
A previous page about wave mechanics explains that forces are always the result of a difference between the radiation pressure and the shade effect. For example, this means that the Sun will extract energy from aether waves in order to amplify all its electrons. This produces a shade effect, which is an attractive force. On the other hand those electrons will radiate this energy as spherical wavelets, which will exert a radiation pressure. However, this pressure is slightly weaker for spherical waves then the maximum value for plane waves. It should be emphasized that the difference is very small. So gravity is not the "fundamental force of the Universe". It is only a residual force, quite insignificant as compared to other forces involved. Matter deals with huge quantities of energy constantly transferring it from aether waves to electrons, then into outgoing wavelets. The sum of all this emitted energy per second is far greater then Einstein's mc squared.
Isaac Newton showed that the gravity force F acts according to a constant G, the mass M of two material entities, and according to the square of the distance L as given by: F
= G M This is brilliant. It must be pointed out that Newton never explained gravity. He wrote : "Hypotheses non fingo". (I do not to put forth assumptions).
In fact, gravity cannot work exactly as Newton predicted. There are many reasons : -
Planets are rather big and the distance L becomes uncertain for short distances. -
Stars and planet density is weaker on their surface than inside the core. -
Planets are spinning and this must produce a torque effect. -
Gravity must be explained by waves, whose action is not instantaneous. -
Gravity is not fully additive. It is weaker behind a second planet (during an eclipse). -
Light IS NOT affected by gravity. However, any matter particle regenerates new light as in optical glass. So one can explain deviations by the presence of particles, especially close to the Sun or stars. Because of the variable solar wind, this deviation should not be constant, albeit the particles speed could compensate for their density. This was demonstrated by the Fizeau experiment.
This list is not exhaustive. Many phenomena appear rather strange. No doubt scientists will find explanations for all of them, assuming that gravity is caused by aether waves. However, there is no need to compute gravity in a totally new way. Newton's equation works to a first approximation, and one must make adjustments for special cases. While trying to explain that light should deviate near the Sun because "gravity is bending space", Albert Einstein did not explain anything. The result is even worse because he did not explain how gravity could do that. We need a mechanical explanation, not sorcery. Einstein's explanation was an insult to our intelligence. |
