    In other words get off the site and don't bother us. With pleasure

    B Cosmological redshift

    I understand that Arp’s work has not been confirmed but then two patches to the standard model, dark matter and energy have not been confirmed yet either. The book is from 20 years ago and has been take seriously by Hoyle, Narlikar, Geoffrey and Margaret Burbidge and many other reputable...

    B Cosmological redshift

    Have a look at the book 'Seeing Red' by Halton Arp for a nice well presented alternative view of the origins of redshift.

    B Is the kinetic energy of a particle quantized?

    So as far as I can see the kinetic energy a particle could be continuous but we have no way of measuring it. We know it is quantized when it is in a system where we give it quantized pushes. So we don't know much and there is no experiment we can do to understand my original question (thanks...

    B Is the kinetic energy of a particle quantized?

    Is the kinetic energy of a particle quantized? Does it increase and decrease in discreet amounts?

    B Gravitational Redshift of a laser

    Excuse me if I shift to cosmology. From what I understand the observed red shift of stars should come from three factors - according to the present model - First is a red shift given by the recession velocity (or general expansion of the Universe) second by the red shift caused by light having...

    B Gravitational Redshift of a laser

    What if I use the lasers as clocks - measure the pulses, divide many times and put the data to a readout. Shouldn't the clock (laser) on the mountain be slower? I do understand that light as it falls into a gravitational field it gains energy and moves to blue and the opposite happens as light...

    B Gravitational Redshift of a laser

    If we run two identical lasers and put one at sea level and one on top of a high mountain, will they operate at different frequencies?

    B What is a clock?

    At least I got this about atomic clocks which had previously been excluded by other posts. @Peter thanks for the warning of a warning!

    B What is a clock?

    Is this the question you want me to answer? Rather offensive actually. You imply that aside from being ignorant (which I admit) I am also stupid. What I have been trying to ask is inertia a factor in the stability of clocks? It is in my pendulum clock, my balance wheel watch and in the...

    B What is a clock?

    This is just what I was trying to understand. The stability of the electronic clock is at least partially based on the fact that the mass is fixed. I would like to say more but it is not a subject for this forum.

    B What is a clock?

    So if the mass of the electron changes (in my imaginary world) does the transition frequency change?

    B What is a clock?

    I realize there it isn't possible to pin down shape of the nucleus or where any bits are at any one time but is there movement or rotation in the nucleus? I have heard that "spin" is actually spin with angular momentum and other that say it is "intrinsic" (whatever that means) and doesn't...

    B What is a clock?

    OK as I said I’m not the expert. But then you say: Here it sounds as if you are not sure how it works and I never suggested it might be a sphere. You say: Well it should be or if it is not then something is wrong – IMHO- tell somebody who has just had his car smashed by inertial forces “well...

    B What is a clock?

    I got this from: http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/Nuclear/nspin.html “nuclei often act as if they are a single entity with intrinsic angular momentum I. Associated with each nuclear spin is a nuclear magnetic moment which produces magnetic interactions with its environment.” As I...
