View count: 379 3 Experiments to Test EDST

by Sam Micheal

Purpose: to test the edst (elastic deformations in space-time) model of elementary particles

Type: Experiment
Status: Proposed

Description

3 distinctly different tests are proposed to test 3 different aspects of the theory: the first i call the "inertia test" and it supposes inertial mass is greater in gravity wells than deep space, the second test i call the "flywheel test" and examines anisotropic gravitational interaction between a high-speed flywheel and earth, and the third test comes from my latest book (N and Omega) which is labeled "a decisive test".

the first test uses a precise torque on a mass and the resulting spin rate is measured. the "set up" is moved into space - far away from strong gravity sources. the same torque is applied to the same mass. spin rate is measured .. confounding aspects are discussed in the test design available at http://www.msu.edu/~micheal/physics/  in addendum 5 near the bottom of the page. this test should be delayed until payload costs drop significantly .. the idea for the test came to me considering special relativistic effects and those near strong gravity sources. they are parallel and edst supposes they are intrinsically the same (not exactly with the same geometry, but similar). time slows down, length/height contracts, and mass increases. convention accepts the first two of three. this test examines the third parallel (to my knowledge, convention does not "take a stand" on the third).

the second test varies the orientation of a high-speed flywheel with respect to the earth which requires precisely measuring its mass while spinning. of course there is going to be vibration from the assembly. this will introduce errors. edst predicts a heavier reading while the flywheel is "laying on its side". i believe convention predicts an enhancement regardless of orientation. the reason edst predicts an enhancement "on its side" is because there should be a cumulative effect of space-stretching along the equator - which is in effect - a directional gravitational enhancement. the cost of the test is dependent on acquiring access to a mechanical engineering lab. it is possible the experiment could be run, in effect, at no charge if a suitable university was located and approval given. otherwise, special materials would be needed for the high-speed flywheel. a sensitive high capacity balance would also be needed.

the third test involves a setup similar to the inside of a conventional TV tube. electron gun at one end; target at the other. the target is a tiny flexible gold leaf which deflects easily upon individual electron impact. there are three "runs" of the experiment: baseline, minutely deflected and restored beam, and strongly deflected and restored beam. the purpose of the test is to verify/disprove that elementary particles are "mini-dynamical systems" with "memory". again, confounding effects are discussed in the webpage above. it turns out interaction time with the deflecting magnets is critical and so must be taken into account. perhaps convention could assimilate the results of the test regardless of the outcome. this possibility exemplifies convention's "weasely fence-riding" prowess. edst predicts a positive result but if the test shows negative, perhaps disturbances "equilibrate" much faster than the apparatus evidences and so beam speed would have to increase to eliminate - for sure - edst. what is being measured here is variation in deflection which equates with "uncertainty in momentum". that is the conventional perspective (particles with the same momentum at a particular position are considered identical with equal uncertainty). edst predicts greater "uncertainty" (variability in deflection) due to greater past disturbance. it is possible the path-integral formulation devised by Feynman could provide a conventional description equivalent to edst. weaseling or valid? let the experiment decide. just as with the flywheel test, access to an electronics lab would reduce the costs of this test considerably.

readers are encouraged to contact their electrical and mechanical engineering laboratories in an effort to facilitate these tests. interested readers are referred to the website above. if there are points or confounding aspects that i have not considered explicitly in the website, please let me know. my email address is micheals at msu dot edu.
