Electrons and protons have static electric fields. These fields fall off as an inverse square, and yet extend to very far distances. If you accelerate an electron, that field does not change instantly, but only with the speed of light.

In new ether physics there are only waves. The ether is the medium of the electromagnetic waves and it is assumed that the ether is a non-material fluid-like medium, a subtle energy substance that permeates the entire universe.

Electrons are not particles that encircle the nucleus instead they are standing wave patterns at discrete. In book: Ether and Modernity: The Recalcitrance of an Epistemic Object in the Early Twentieth Century (pp) the idea of electromagnetic waves and electrons propagating in the ether.

If you flick a string, a traveling wave moves down it; if you do this continually, say once a second, you generate a travelling wave train with a frequency of 1 s-1, or one wavelength per second, where the wavelength is the distance between successive peaks (or any other repeating feature) of the wave.

Thomson (page images at HathiTrust). The densest form of ether motion gives the ordinary current electricity and in that same kind of ether are the vibrations of sound, which set the air waves going (vibrations of air are secondary). Another density of ether gives the vibrations of light.

Then there are fast and short waves which give the finer forms of electricity. Luminiferous aether or ether ("luminiferous", meaning "light-bearing") was the postulated medium for the propagation of light.

It was invoked to explain the ability of the apparently wave-based light to propagate through empty space, something that waves should not be able to do. The assumption of a spatial plenum of luminiferous aether, rather than a spatial vacuum. CHAPTER 60 H.A.

The notion that every large object, such as the earth, carries its own ether, is not considered. Since the electron and proton spin positions are part of the spheres of Aether, and since the Aether constant is equal to 16π2 (4π ⋅ 4π), which implies the two spin positions are orthogonal to each other, we can assume that the proton and electron spin positions are also orthogonal to.

When you are hit by a ball, what ultimately happens is energy transfer from the ball to your skin. And what is energy at the most fundamental level. It is electromagnetic radiation or light waves or ether waves. So in essence it is impacts from light waves upon the skin which the brain interprets as touch.

Same thing is with sound (vide above). Each electron receives energy from a single photon and violet photons have more energy than red photons. Ejected energy of electrons is unaffected by brightness. Depends on frequency.

Relatively low frequency of (red) waves ensures low energy per photon. The wave theory of light is called the "aether theory" or more commonly the "ether theory." One reason for having two spellings is to differentiate the ether that fills the universe versus the gas that can be used to put people to sleep.

The ether theory is that the universe is filled with small particles, which I call "ethons."File Size: KB. Normally we would rule out a complex wave function of the form (), on the grounds that, e.g.

the displacement of a vibrating string, or the strength of electric and magnetic fields in a radio wave, or the pressure variation in a sound wave, are strictly real the wave function, what is the wave equation. Waves on strings, sound waves, and light waves, all satisfy wave.

The book uniquely discusses failures as well as research success stories. EM radiation can be thought of as particles (the photon) or waves, which is commonly referred to as the "wave particle duality" The Speed of Light [ edit ] All electromagnetic waves travel at the same speed (in a vacuum), and that is the universal constant known as the "speed of light," most often abbreviated by the lower-case letter "c".

Wave-particle duality. We already know that EM radiation can behave as both waves and particles. InLouis de Broglie proposed that all matter, including electrons, has a dual wave-particle nature. Electron diffraction. The wave-particle duality of electrons can be proved using an electron diffraction tube.

How does the wave model of electrons orbiting the nucleus account for discrete energy values rather than a continuous range of energy values. Check back soon.

(b) Explain whether the wave nature of the incident alpha particles should have been taken into account in interpreting these experiments.

The mass of an alpha particle is $\mathrm{u}$ (atomic mass units), and its distance of closest approach to the nuclear center in these experiments was about 30 $\mathrm{fm}$. Page 10 - This rapid review will suffice to show you that the theory of electrons is to be regarded as an extension to the domain of electricity of the molecular and atomistic theories that have proved of so much use in many branches of physics and chemistry.

Like these, it is apt to be viewed unfavourably by some physicists, who prefer to push their way into new and. Light waves are oscillations of electric and magnetic fields. All light energy is visible. Light energy is due to vibrations in the air. Light waves propagate through a medium called ether, similar to waves in water.

Light is due to oscillations in the nucleus of atoms. Question 34 1 / 1 pts. Ether 1. Ether 2. Ether 3. Ether 4. Ether 5. Ether 6. Ether 7. Ether 8. Ether 9.

As shown on the book cover, this 5-D representation includes three dimensions of length and two dimensions of frequency.

We call this "space-resonance," and the parameters were induced directly from empirical measurements of electrons, protons, Coulomb’s constant, the Newton gravitational constant, Planck’s constant, the speed of light, and.

The quantum behavior of atomic objects (electrons, protons, neutrons, photons, and so on) is the same for all, they are all “particle waves,” or whatever you want to call them. So what we learn about the properties of electrons (which we shall use for our examples) will apply also to all “particles,” including photons of light.

The electron is a bound wave, represented by some wavefunction. If so (since electrons are not a form of EM wave) through what medium are the electrons propagating as they orbit the nucleus as a wave.

There is no medium except the electrons themselves, that is the change in ideology from the ether theories. What is now often called Lorentz ether theory (LET) has its roots in Hendrik Lorentz's "theory of electrons", which was the final point in the development of the classical aether theories at the end of the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th century.

Lorentz's initial theory was created between and and was based on a completely motionless aether. Electrons drag ether along with them, and when electron density changes rapidly, so does the ether density.

This is why wires given strong current pulses mysteriously break apart into segments as though pulled apart by internal longitudinal forces, and why rail guns buckle in ways that cannot be explained by mere magnetic forces.

Accepting that these waves exist, we can try to learn what they might mean. We know the frequency and the wavelength of the wave associated with a particle of energy E and p. Can write down various formulae for waves of given f and.

According to classical wave theory, a wave's energy depends on its intensity (which depends on. Matter is a wave and a particle.

In the s, a young physicist named Louis de Broglie made a radical suggestion: Since light has energy, momentum and a wavelength, and matter has energy and Author: Paul Sutter.
