    GR, SR and the Sagnac effect question

    http://www.rta.nato.int/Pubs/RDP.asp?RDP=RTO-AG-339 [Broken] There's a link to the NATO explanation that was prepared by a coalition of scientists and says GR is required... Hence my confusion.

    Gravity/acceleration equivalent?

    Oh, okay, so you are saying that you observe gravitational time dilation only if you share the same accelerated coordinate system? How then can we on earth observe gravitational red shift when observing stars and their light as they pass by massive objects etc. etc? We are not in their...

    Gravity/acceleration equivalent?

    I don't know that I understand your point. "Its a chemical-reaction force that accelerates a rocket, not a gravitational one." In the end I really don't care what force accelerated something not under the influnce of gravity. But what I am saying may be obvious to your or something I guess. All...

    Gravity/acceleration equivalent?

    I read from the link Jesse posted and it was interesting but it didn't seem completely relevant to the context. Unfortunately I don't entirely follow what you are saying about taking gravitational time dilation into account above. We factor out anything wrt the earth's gravity because it is...

    Gravity/acceleration equivalent?

    Umm. Okay. Mind giving some detail/qualification? Which part? Can you explain how your answer relates to the experiments I cited earlier?

    Gravity/acceleration equivalent?

    Okay, so the point is here that he's actually receeding from the frame that the emitter was in at the moment of emission. No problem. Where I'm having a problem is that the top astronaut should be experiencing time faster than the bottom one if they are truly in a gravitational field. If they...

    Gravity/acceleration equivalent?

    Ok. Yeah, I see what you are saying. Acceleration causes no time dilation is the point that the experiment proved. Gravity does. While that doesn't specifically fit with the thought experiment's criteria because of the need to communicate at a distance, there's still a difference between...

    Gravity/acceleration equivalent?

    I probably just don't understand the context... I was under the impression that there were time effects from gravitation alone and that there were well known in regards to muon decay. The SR effects are there and are exactly as predicted, but any GR time effects that one might incorrectly...

    Gravity/acceleration equivalent?

    F. J. M. Farley, J. Bailey, R. C. A. Brown, M. Giesch, H. J¨ostlein, S. van der Meer, E. Picasso and M. Tannenbaum, Nuovo Cimento 45, 281-286 (1966), "The anomolous magnetic moment of the negative muon" Above, they measured muon decay under many thousands of "G" from acceleration in a storage...

    Photon's Perspective of Time

    Well heck, if we're going to bring philosophy and reasoning into it then things can get a lot more interesting. Mathematically describe categorizations. It's a matter of opinion whether or not concepts that Math cannot describe are valuable or not. Zapper ascribes to the "not valuable"...

    GR, SR and the Sagnac effect question

    I've read in multiple locations that GR is necessary to properly explain a co-rotating perspective/observer of the experiment. Additionally, SR can explain the experience of non-inertial observer. The above two statements seem somewhat conflicting and leads to my question. Why is it that...

    Muon Centrifuge question

    I apologize for being so vague. I didn't mean the variation from one side of the planet to the other. I meant the variation from aphelion to perihelion.

    Muon Centrifuge question

    Well, as you might have guessed I'm still fond of reading nonsense becasue I like finding questions to which I currently do not know the answer. Then I can go about getting the answer! I lightly perused the paper you mentioned above and found an interesting quandry. Whyare clocks on...

    Most persistent myths.

    It's for deciding when two branches are equally valid in all but complexity. ID and evolution are not equal in their ability to predict and describe. So I'd say that would qualify as another of the horrible abuses that make people think occams razor is crap. I believe it is useful at a micro...

    Oregon Vortex

    You can just google it so I won't get in trouble for linking to it. Anyone ever looked at it? It looks like just optical illusion silliness to me but is there any possibility of some other sort of thing going on? Was just wodering if anyone ever did anything meaningful there in the way of...
