# Experiment to determine if OWLS is same

suppose speed of light varies in two directions
->c=10
<-c=5

distance=100, A and B stationary wrt each other
A....d=100.....B

A resets clock and sends signal to B
A=0............B=?

10 seconds pass, B receives signal and resets clock, B sends signal to A
A=10...........B=0

20 seconds pass, A receives signal from B
A=30...........B=20

Now A sends signal to B, B reflects the signal, then A reflects the signal, B gets the signal. 40 seconds pass
A=70..........B=60
(A sent signal when A=30, B received when B=60, difference = 30)

Now B sends signal to A, A reflects the signal, then B reflects the signal, A gets the signal. 50 seconds pass
A=120.........B=110
(B sent signal when B=60, a got the signal at A=120, difference = 60)

result: 30<>60.
With this experiment, we were able to determine if OWLS was not same in both directions.

Go collect your nobel prize, I don't care.

P.S. verification: same experiment if OWLS is same in both directions
->c=10
<-c=10

A resets clock and sends signal to B
A=0............B=?

10 seconds pass, B receives signal and resets clock, B sends signal to A
A=10...........B=0

10 seconds pass, A receives signal from B
A=20...........B=10

Now A sends signal to B, B reflects the signal, then A reflects the signal, B gets the signal. 30 seconds pass
A=50...........B=40
(B sent signal when B=10, A got the signal when A=50, difference = 40)

Now B sends signal to A, A reflects the signal, then B reflects the signal, A gets the signal. 30 seconds pass
A=80...........B=70
(B sent signal when B=40, A got the signal at A=80, difference = 40)

result:40=40

Just something I noticed at first glance... From second example:
B didn't send the signal, A did. So this last line should be
(A sent signal when A=20, B got the signal when B=40, difference = 20)

therefore..
result: 40<>20

Or Am I mistakin' ?

ouch...
yes you are correct...
I was so sure I found a way.. by bouncing light 3 times...
sorry...
never mind...
