The Centrifugal Force and the Coriolis Force (2014)

In 1835, French scientist Gaspard-Gustave de Coriolis wrote a paper in which he mathematically derived equations of motion for rotating coordinate systems [1]. In this paper he drew attention to two categories of supplementary forces. Coriolis referred to these forces...

The Speed of Light (2013)

The aether (or electricity) is a fluid-like substance that is the stuff of all matter and space, and it flows constantly between positive and negative particles, with particles being merely aether sources and aether sinks. Space is densely packed with aether sinks...

The Significance of Maxwell’s Equations (2012)

James Clerk-Maxwell is credited with having brought electricity, magnetism, and optical phenomena, together into one unified theory. The details of what exactly he did were however seriously distorted in twentieth century physics textbooks. Maxwell is most famous in...

Maxwell’s Original Equations (2011)

Although Maxwell’s most important equations had already appeared throughout his seminal paper entitled “On Physical Lines of Force”, which was written in1861 in Great Britain, it was not until 1864 that Maxwell created a distinct listing of eight...

Centrifugal Force (2011)

It is nowadays taught that centrifugal force is a fictitious force that can only be observed from a rotating frame of reference. This teaching is based on the argument that when no inward centripetal force is acting, a particle will proceed in its straight line...
