Mach's Principle and Newton's Pail Experiment?
Can someone please explain this to me and the apparent mystery it's suppose to offer with regard to absolute acceleration.
I don't see it, a spinning pail of water that results in a curved surface is meant to somehow reveal an insight into relative mass and absolute acceleration. As far as I can tell, the curvature of the water is completely explained by classical mechanics.
What am I missing? Thanks.
