52) Unipolar Induction: Resolving Faraday's Paradox?

Harry Ricker reviews a recent paper that claims to solve Faraday's Paradox. A discussion of attempts to resolve Faradai's Paradox regarding unipolar induction follows. Viewers add questions & comments.

51) Bill Lucas discusses the evolution of the scientific method.- Part 2

Bill Lucas reviews and goes into greater detail on his Part 1 discussion (#39 in this series). He discusses the scientific method and how it declined in modern physics. Bill reviews Poincare's Meta Theory. Bill details Elon Musk's breakthrough efforts, based on Bill's early prototype work, on being able to capture CBM radiation to provide virtually free energy.24/7.

50) Foundations of Gottfried Gutsche's Mechanics

Dennis Allen presents the foundations of Gutschian Mechanics and contrasts it with Newtonian Mechanics. Newton made a simplification in developing his mechanics and Gursche replaces that simplification with an explicit treatment..Gutsche prioritizes distance traveled over time traveled and energy over momentum. Gutsche's Mechanics predicts inertial propulsion whereas Newton's doesn't.

49 Is Special Relativity's Prediction of Mass Increase with Increasing Velocity Valid?

Harry Ricker starts off by looking at linear accelerators to see if Special Relativity's prediction of mass increase is supported. Others interact with Harry's discussion and also present alternative non-relativistic models.

48) David Bower on Gyroscopes and Rotational Motion Effects

David Bower discusses looking for a simpler, more intuitive explanation for some of the rotational effects of gyroscopes. While some detailed math is discussed, the key ideas are mostly discussed at the conceptual level. The discussion is interactive with a variety of different views being put forward..

47) Applying Neo-Newtonian Mechanics, inertial mass and inertial force to unsolved physics problems

Dennis Allen extends classical mechanics to address some unexplained phenomena such as the exploding wire problem and why some examples of rotating mass lose weight.

46) Three Perspectives On Different Versions of the Lorentz Transformations (LTs)

Nick Percival starts with some general points about Lorentz's original LTs versus Einstein's observer centric LTs. Then Harry Ricker goes into much greater detail on those two versions of the LTs and adds some brief comments on the Selleri Transformations. Harvey Scribner discusses the lesser know and quite different Ed Dowdye Extinction Shift Principle model and derivation of the LTs.

45) Ian Cowan on the Non Constancy of the Speed of Light and Maxwell vs Hertz

Ian Cowan reviews the empirical data on the constancy vs non-constancy of the speed of light. Ian also compares Maxwell's EM equations to Hertz's equations and to using the total derivative approach of fluid mechanics. (Note the video starts with some very brief, spontaneous, pre-presentation comments on Climate Change.)

44) Roger Anderton on how pro-Special Relativity advocates respond when flaws are revealed.

Roger presents 3 issues on Special Relativity (SR) and SR's revised version of Lorentz's original Transformations. These 3 issues are by no means the most serious flaws in SR, but they illustrate the lack of communication and consistency between the theoreticians, the experimenters and the teachers (and text books). Most revealing is how pro-SR advocates respond when flaws are revealed. One common reaction is "Moving the Goal Posts". Roger's presentation is followed by a group discussion which basically confirms and expands on Roger's thesis.

43) Harry Ricker Discusses Herbert Dingle's Criticisms of Special Relativity

Harry shows how Einstein's interpretation of the Relativity Principle as requiring symmetric physics effects led to Special Relativity's problems & paradoxes & contradictions that were pointed out by Dingle, and many other physicists, and never correctly rebutted by relativists. In fact, the relativists' rebuttals have ironically supported Dingle's assertions. (Note: Harry correctly describes how Einstein's intepretation of the Relativity Principle must led to concluding that all inertial clocks must have the same proper time accumulation rate. So when Harry says that Einstein came to the "wrong conclusion" that a moving clock will run slow, some viewers, especially fans of Special Relativity, may then erroneously dismiss the whole presentation as they know that moving (atomic) clocks run slow, whereas Harry's and Dingle's point is that, within the context of Special Relativity (e.g., the symmetric time dilation equation), slowed clocks is incorrect as that requires an asymmetric equation.
