| **ETHER_AND_EQUIVALENCE_PRINCIPLE**
As it is well known, in the “equivalence principle” of the General Theory of Relativity, Einstein asserts that **“In a reference frame S moving (away from gravitational fields) linearly and with constant acceleration ã (Fig. 1(a)), the field of
inertial forces existing within it is equivalent to a gravitational field of strength g Fig. 1(b), where ã=g”.** |

| **Fig. 1(a) Fig. 1(b)** Fig. 1
According to the Electrogravitational Theory, Einstein¢s assertions about the
“equivalence principle” are wrong for the following reasons: Let us assume that the reference frame S is a small chamber 2m x 2m x 2m. From the chamber¢s ceiling we hang a spring *a* carrying at its end a mass m which carries an electric charge q (positive or negative). Also, inside chamber S there is an observer (Ï). **1.**
Let us consider that chamber S accelerates in space (away from gravitational fields with constant acceleration ã (e.g. ã=9,81m/sec^{2}), Fig. 1(a).
**2.** Then let us consider that chamber S is stationary on the surface of the Earth, with the strength of the Earth¢s gravitational field being g (e.g. ã=9,81m/sec^{2}, Fig. 1(b).
**Note**: The fields existing inside chamber S in the above two cases (1) and
(2) are considered to be homogeneous.
Based on the “Equivalence principle” of the General Theory of Relativity, Einstein asserts that **“no physics experiment (mechanics or electromagnetism experiment) can enable observer** **(Ï) inside chamber S to know which case applies for chamber S, the one of Fig. 1(a) or of Fig. 1(b). **
Moreover, Einstein erred in his assertions for the following reasons: **a.** **
According to the fundamental “Law of the magnetic field formation” (***See *“Ether and Magnetic Field” on www.tsolkas.gr**),** observer (Ï) who in the case of Fig. 1(a) is inside the accelerating chamber, will observe a magnetic field of strength Â > 0, which is attributed to electric charge q of sphere m. **b. **Conversely, when chamber** **S is stationary on the surface of the
Earth (Fig. 1b), observer (Ï) who is inside chamber S will not observe any magnetic field, that is, Â = Ï.
**Consequently, on the basis of the above observations (a) and (b), observer (Ï) who is inside chamber S is in a position to know at all times whether chamber S is accelerating (Fig. 1a) or remains stationary on the surface of the Earth (Fig. 1(a).**
However, this conclusion is in complete contradiction with the “equivalence principle” of
the General Theory of Relativity which holds (as stated above”): **“No physics experiment can enable observer** **(Ï) inside chamber S to know whether chamber S is accelerating (Fig. 1a) or remains stationary on the surface of the Earth (Fig. 1b).**
In a nutshell, Einstein holds the following: In both of the above cases (Fig. 1a and Fig. 1b), the magnetic field observed by observer (Ï) will have a strength Â = Ï. According to Einstein, this occurs due to the
equivalence between the field of inertial forces (Fig. 1a) and the field of gravitational forces (Fig. 1b) inside chamber S. Obviously, what Einstein asserts is utterly wrong because according to the Electrogravitational Theory: **In the case of Fig. 1(a), observer (Ï) will observe that Â > Ï, whereas in the case of Fig. 1(b) he will observe that Â = Ï.**
At this point, given that the “equivalence principle” of the General theory of Relativity is false (as
demonstrated above), the following should be stressed:
**The inertial mass of a body is at all times EQUAL to its gravitational mass (as Newton accurately asserts), and these two masses and are never EQUIVALENT to each other (as Einstein wrongly holds in the “equivalence principle”). **
**CONCLUSION **
Based on the above elaborated simple experiment (Fig. 1a and êáé Fig. 1b) and the fundamental “**Law of
the magnetic field formation” of the Electrogravitational theory** it is clearly demonstrated that Einstein¢s assertions concerning the “equivalence principle” are unfounded and therefore this principle is utterly false. **EXPERIMENTAL VERIFICATION **
The falsity of the “equivalence principle” can be proven by means of a simple experiment described below: **Experiment**
Let us assume (Fig. 2) that chamber S is a rocket ship moving in space with constant acceleration ã. |

| **Fig. 2**
**In this case, astronaut (Ï) inside rocket ship S will observe the existence of a magnetic field (generated by the electric charge q of sphere m) with strength Â > Ï and not Â = Ï, as Einstein erroneously asserts. **
**CHAMBER¢S FREE FALL**
Let us assume (Fig. 3) that chamber S is in free fall e.g. in the Earth¢s gravitational field. In this case, the observer (Ï) who is inside chamber S will observe (according to the Electrogravitational Theory) a magnetic field of strength Â>0 and not Â = 0, as Einstein wrongly asserts in his “equivalence principle”. Here lies Einstein¢s great error (one of his many errors) where the formulation of the above principle is concerned. To this day, this fact
(i.e. Â>0) has never been recorded either by classical Physics or the Theory of Relativity. This phenomenon is additional clear proof of the existence of Ether in nature. Therefore, the performance of this simple experiment, that is “chamber¢s S free fall” (Fig. 3) in the Earth¢s gravitational field, allows us to instantly establish that Â>0 for the observer (Ï) who is inside chamber S and evidently the latter signifies that the “equivalence
principle” of the General Theory of Relativity is an utterly false theory of Physics. | |
