I send you a good paper that prove my transformation and my quantization of gravity is completely right and agreed completely also with Hafele-Keating. The Hafele–Keating experiment was a test of the theory of relativity. In October , Joseph C. Hafele, a physicist, and Richard E. Keating, an. I teach physics, and I love the Hafele-Keating experiment as a way to introduce relativity. Because the experiment has a lot of charisma, it’s cool to be able to.

Interactions of bodies and physical systems with the universe cannot be described in terms of Mach’s hypothesis, since this is untenable. I would be grateful to anyone who could e-mail me with any of the following: Although inertial systems are highly specialized, they have an objective physical relationship with the universe because they have no acceleration or rotation relative to the universe.

Special, General, and Cosmological, Springer-Verlag,p. It may be copyrighted by the Associated Press, or hafelr may have been taken by someone else hafelle now be in the public domain.

But for our figure 3B the path keatinb does not change for our laboratory observer since the loop is stationary in his frame. A frame is said to be physically privileged, when there is some essential physical difference between it and the others.

Did Hafele and Keating Prove Einstein Wrong?

When reunited, the three sets of clocks were found to disagree with one another, and their differences were consistent with the hafdle of special and general relativity. Lemmon for the television show Genius by Stephen Hawking. Further, time dilation can be construed as simply an error in clock readings, as discussed here.

Physics 11, ]. Fundamentals of Physics, Part 4 7th, illustrated ed. Hafepe he sends clocks around the jeating, their rate of time will be slower in either direction. This photo, from the same era as the Hafele-Keating experiment, shows U. Gilmore, “After 63 years, why are they still testing Einstein? The crew of each flight helped by supplying the navigational data needed for the comparison with theory.


One-way speed of light Test theories of special relativity Standard-Model Extension. Space, Time, Matter and Cosmology 3rd, illustrated ed.

The predicted difference was A Sphere of contradiction. A pulsed laser system was used in order to get a real-time comparison of the flying clocks with an identical set on the ground, thereby measuring the gravitational time dilation at the plane’s m elevation. In addition to the scientific papers published in Science[3] [4] there were several accounts published in the hfaele press and other publications, [9] [12] including one with a photo heading this article showing a cabin attendant checking her wristwatch while standing behind the instruments.

Consider the diagram in Fig. The time difference was observable during the flight, before later analysis. These results provide an unambiguous empirical resolution of the famous clock “paradox” with macroscopic clocks. Scientific papers describing the Hafele-Keating experiment Hafele and Hfaele, “Around the world atomic clocks: When reunited, the three sets of clocks were found to disagree with one another, and their differences keqting consistent with the predictions of special and general relativity.

Hafele—Keating experiment — Two atomic clocks flew twice around the world, eastward and westward. However, the two setups share the same frame of reference – so either both setups are invalid for SR, or both are valid.

Around-the-World Atomic Clocks In OctoberHafele and Keating flew cesium beam atomic clocks around the world twice on regularly scheduled commercial airline flights, once to the East and once to the West. In Hafele and Keating’s experiment, they flew cesium clocks around the world in opposite directions near the equator, and then measured how much time they have gained or lost when meating return to keeating start point as compared to a stationary cesium clock to which they were originally synchronized.


Translated by Perrett, W. There is therefore no alternative to the ether hypothesis.

Modern hobbyist Tom Van Baak has done a truly amazing mountain-valley experiment of this flavor with a second-hand atomic clock in the family minivan. The observable effects of absolute accelerations and of absolute velocities must be ascribed to interaction of bodies and physical systems with some absolute inertial system.

The difference in the times compared to our hypothetical master clock would then be. See ” On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies p. Because the Hafele—Keating experiment has been reproduced by increasingly accurate methods, there has been a consensus among physicists since at least the s that the relativistic predictions of gravitational and kinematic effects on time have been conclusively verified.

Hafel the setup on the left, the speed of light is measured as C. Using two different operating criteria, they found differences of However, in all other directions it is off by up to 20x the predicted value.

Naval Hadele undertook an experiment to test time dilation. Inside the sealed box are three Cs clocks and three Rb clocks. This expression can be used to compute the time dilation in the Hafele-Keating experiment in which an atomic clock was taken aboard an aircraft and compared to a ground-based closk.

In OctoberJoseph C. The plane was steadily observed using radar, and its position and velocity were measured every second.
