Subject: E= mc2 extended to ΔE=Ac2 Δm after 100 Years (paper published in peer review journal, abstracted in CURRENT CONTENTS)
Since student of BSc II (1982) I was interested in understanding the origin of E=mc2. This curiosity led me to critically analyze Einstein?s original paper published in Annalen der Physik (A. Einstein, Ann. Phys. 18, 639 1905) in which Einstein published E=mc2. Einstein?s 27 Sep 1905 paper (origin of E=mc2) available at http://www.fourmilab.ch/etexts/einstein/E_mc2/www/
I found some serious in discrepancies, that even Einstein?s derivation of E=mc2 results in Contradiction of Law of Conservation of Matter if results are analyzed over a wide range. It is unnoticed by scientific community.
It has resulted in modification of E=mc2. The paper is accepted for presentation over 50 international conferences. I presented the same in two conferences in University of Warwick and Oxford in 2005. E= mc2 extended to DE=Ac2Dm after 100 Years (paper published in peer review journal, abstracted in CURRENT CONTENTS)
The copy of the published paper, modifying Einstein?s E=mc2 to dE =Ac2 dm is attached. It is published from CANADA, OTTAWA in international journal of research Physics Essays (abstracted in Current Contents etc.) dedicated to fundamental questions in Physics.
The copy of paper is also available from journal?s online site for US $ 4.
May I hope that you and your colleagues or other scholars will give their opinions about it. The different opinions help us in properly understanding of the concepts about inter-conversion of mass and energy. I will be thankful to you, if you circulate the paper.
The contents of the paper are elaborated in price book (nearly 175 pp)
100 Years of E=mc2
which is being published NEW YORK (USA) based Nova Science Publishers.
The Publisher for non-English languages are required
Thanking you in anticipation. Hope to hear soon.

sincerely

Einstein never wrote E=mc^2. And if you actually were published in a peer reviewed journal I believe the appropriate citations includes author's names, journal named, year, volume, and page number.

If what you have done is serious physics then:
1) What was Einstein's actual formula?
2) Where, precisely, have you been published

And while we are on the subject ... precisely which journal has published a paper supporting the proposition that Einstein was incorrect?

I find it fascinating that you have found inconsistencies and the entire physics community, both theoretical and experimental has not.

I teach at a large research university with a more than adequate library system. So if you don't mind then:

1. Author name
2. Journal name
3. Volume
4. Page

And, again, Einstein never wrote E=mc^2. Do you know what he actually wrote? Apparently not.

You claim Einstein was incorrect. Please provide a citation to a peer reviewed journal article that supports your contention.

Thank you.

If A is a proportionality constant then the "new" equation is exactly the same as E=m^c2, except for units. So what?

Your second link is not any good. I tried it and couldn't get anything other than a message that the server could not be found. You might want to check that one out.

Yes I do. I have spent years on it. I have presented the same in international conferences and got it published in peer review journals.
On this topic my book
100 Years of E=mc2
is being published from New York by NOVA SCIENCE

Do you want to ask anything.
OK I wil reply.
But pre-requisite is prior understanding to
Einstein's Sep 1905 paper
&
My 28 page paper.
I can send you both, give me your Email and your affiliations at
physicsajay@lycos.co.uk

Thanks.

Here is a quote from your writings, which shows that you do not understand elementary math limits :
--------------------------
(i) Inconsistency of dimensional homogeneity when v -> c in eq.(1).

If fi = 0, then eq. (1) becomes,
l* = l (1 ? v/c) / sqrt (1 ? v2 /c2) (4)

If the system [ .... ] moves with velocity equal to that of light i.e. v = c which realistically means that velocity v tends to c i.e. v -> c. (some Quasars or other heavenly bodies may attain such high velocities) .Thus,

l* = 0/0

which is undefined or l* tends to 0/0 which has the same meaning.
-------------------- end of quotation

The correct computation shows instead:
lim {(1 ? v/c) / sqrt (1 ? v2 /c2)} as v --> c =
= 1/sqrt( (1 ? v2 /c2)/(1 ? v/c)/(1 ? v/c) )
= sqrt( (1 - v/c)/(1 + v/c) ) = 0

Hence, l* = 0

Conclusion:

Before writing about theoretical physics issues, it would not harm to learn elementary Math.

Probably not. But what have you proved except a proportional constant? Why can this constant not be equal to unity? So what? What are you trying to say?

Well done extrasense. Well done indeed. physicsajay is a fraud and not even a good one.

When I asked him for the citation so I could look his paper up on the library here's what he wrote at SAGG:

As you have aslked for address of the paper( NOT FOR 28 PAGE SCIENTIFIC MATERIAL ) , KINDLY SEE
NAme of journal Physics Essays Specilaisation Fundamental question in physics Year 2004
Number 17
Issue 2
Page 195-222

A two second trip to:
http://www.physicsessays.com/default.asp
and a scroll down to Number 17: Issue 2 shows:

Vol. 17 No. 2 June 2004
* Model of Fundamental Particles. Part 2 - Leptons
* Laboratory Physics and Cosmology
* Einstein's Relativity Theory on Dock
* New Model of the Universe
* Theoretical Evidence of a Light Carrier
* The Two Velocities of Classical Waves
* Different Geometries for Special Relativity
* Physical Nature of the Bohmian Quantum Potential
* The Origin of Generalized Mass-Energy Equation E = Ac2 M; and its Applications in General Physics and Cosmology
* The Fundamental Concepts of Classical Equilibrium Statistical Mechanics
* Some Correlations Between Light Nuclear Phenomena and an Extended Nuclear Cluster Model
* Erratum: The Relativity Theories and the Speed of Light

No "Specilaisation Fundamental question in physics". What a surprise.

And still he has been unable to write the formula that Einstein actually wrote which is not E=mc^2.

Kindly see that this issue has ben discussed at 207 and 208 of paper in SECTION 4.
Have you read it?
Do you have copy of paper?
The equation you are discussing was derived by Einstein June 1905c and Sep 1905 papers.
I really dont know you about your scientific affiliations. LET ME KNOW ABOUT IT.
I welcome criticism and also reply but it must be well founded.
If you understand there is everything right in paper.

If Einstein did not derive E=mc^2 then globally the eqautrion is asociated with his name.
Why not with Newton's name or someone else.
Then who derived E=mc^2 ?
Give me name of scientist, Journal its volume and page.
Explain what you mean to say, so that I and members understand thesame.

From what I see, you do not have a clue as to what limits are.

I am not sure you know what elementary algebra is about.

Can you solve an equation:
x^2 + 6x +10 =0

Can you solve the equation system:

13x + 4y =177
8x + 11y=123

Tell you your affiliation so I will use the same level to clarify. I have asked the same earlier also.

ES Read the paper ( ir is published in scientific journal) . All the things are explained a page 207, 208 Section 4.
So read the paper.

I have proved
l* = 0/0
I have too have proved FROM THE SAME EQAUTION.
l* = 0
There was a reason to prove both the reulst.
The reason and logic to prove both.

See paper. If you neeed it give me you Email I will send you. I have sent over 1000 copies of irt by Email in past three weeks, when it was published.

I have simply asked you to
elaborate the steps the way you mean l* = 0
But you did not elaborate.
Bacause I too done the same in paper.

So all would have been over.

Even a student of 8th Class class can solve the equations, THER ARE ESTABLISHED METHODS FOR THE SAME.
Again if you need the paper let me your Email.

I have number of time requested tell me you email . I will send you the copy. This you dont want to do.
The things are you are raising are all discusseed at page 206-207 in Section 4.

physicsjay ... you have NEVER published in a peer reviewed journal ... you have no idea what formula Einstein actually published but yet you've proven it wrong ... you can't solve elementary math problems ... and you want us to waste our time reading your paper.

I'm in full agreement with extrasense ... you are a kook, a crackpot, a self-aggrandizing waste of time.

Go away and in your copious spare time try retaking elementary school.

Physics Essays is a peer reviewed journal that publishes crackpot physics. The journal was founded in order to give the crackpots an outlet to publish their ideas so that they won't bother serious scientists. The articles submitted, reviewed (by fellow crackpots) and published in Physics Essays are now not submitted to Physical Review, Science or Nature.

The editorial board contains the names of real distinguished scientists, but they are not really editors of Physics Essays. They have just agreed to sit on a ficticious editorial board to fool the crackpots.

My work is part of international literature .
IT IS APPROVED BY EXPERTS IN FILEDS OF RELATIVITY.
My work is published by experts in conferences in all the CONTINENTS except in Australia where I did not visit yet.

If you dont want to understand the matter, OK . It is your free will, it is your problem.
That is right.

Not a chance and let me answer your question for you in the easiest way possible.

Earlier you asked: " If Einstein did not derive E=mc^2 then globally the eqautrion is asociated with his name."

Indicating that you are totally clueless about basic physics. So as I teach at a university I will help you in the same way I would help any of my students.

1. go to: www.google.com
2. type in: "Einstein's Real Formula"
3. Hit the <Enter> key

Your ignorance is profound. Your apparent laziness consistent with the results of your education.

DOES THE INERTIA OF A BODY DEPEND
UPON ITS ENERGY-CONTENT?
By A. Einstein
September 27, 1905
The results of the previous investigation lead to a very interesting conclusion, which is here to be deduced.

I based that investigation on the Maxwell-Hertz equations for empty space, together with the Maxwellian expression for the electromagnetic energy of space, and in addition the principle that:--

The laws by which the states of physical systems alter are independent of the alternative, to which of two systems of coordinates, in uniform motion of parallel translation relatively to each other, these alterations of state are referred (principle of relativity).

With these principles* as my basis I deduced inter alia the following result (? 8):--

Let a system of plane waves of light, referred to the system of co-ordinates (x, y, z), possess the energy l; let the direction of the ray (the wave-normal) make an angle with the axis of x of the system. If we introduce a new system of co-ordinates () moving in uniform parallel translation with respect to the system (x, y, z), and having its origin of co-ordinates in motion along the axis of x with the velocity v, then this quantity of light--measured in the system ()--possesses the energy



where c denotes the velocity of light. We shall make use of this result in what follows.

Let there be a stationary body in the system (x, y, z), and let its energy--referred to the system (x, y, z) be E0. Let the energy of the body relative to the system () moving as above with the velocity v, be H0.

Let this body send out, in a direction making an angle with the axis of x, plane waves of light, of energy ?L measured relatively to (x, y, z), and simultaneously an equal quantity of light in the opposite direction. Meanwhile the body remains at rest with respect to the system (x, y, z). The principle of energy must apply to this process, and in fact (by the principle of relativity) with respect to both systems of co-ordinates. If we call the energy of the body after the emission of light E1 or H1 respectively, measured relatively to the system (x, y, z) or () respectively, then by employing the relation given above we obtain



By subtraction we obtain from these equations



The two differences of the form H - E occurring in this expression have simple physical significations. H and E are energy values of the same body referred to two systems of co-ordinates which are in motion relatively to each other, the body being at rest in one of the two systems (system (x, y, z)). Thus it is clear that the difference H - E can differ from the kinetic energy K of the body, with respect to the other system (), only by an additive constant C, which depends on the choice of the arbitrary additive constants of the energies H and E. Thus we may place



since C does not change during the emission of light. So we have



The kinetic energy of the body with respect to () diminishes as a result of the emission of light, and the amount of diminution is independent of the properties of the body. Moreover, the difference K0 - K1, like the kinetic energy of the electron (? 10), depends on the velocity.

Neglecting magnitudes of fourth and higher orders we may place



From this equation it directly follows that:--

If a body gives off the energy L in the form of radiation, its mass diminishes by L/c?. The fact that the energy withdrawn from the body becomes energy of radiation evidently makes no difference, so that we are led to the more general conclusion that

The mass of a body is a measure of its energy-content; if the energy changes by L, the mass changes in the same sense by L/9 ? 1020, the energy being measured in ergs, and the mass in grammes.

It is not impossible that with bodies whose energy-content is variable to a high degree (e.g. with radium salts) the theory may be successfully put to the test.

If the theory corresponds to the facts, radiation conveys inertia between the emitting and absorbing bodies.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Footnotes
* The principle of the constancy of the velocity of light is of course contained in Maxwell's equations.

This edition of Einstein's Does the Inertia of a Body Depend upon its Energy-Content? is based on the English translation of his original 1905 German-language paper (published as Ist die Tr?gheit eines K?rpers von seinem Energiegehalt abh?ngig?, in Annalen der Physik. 18:639, 1905) which appeared in the book The Principle of Relativity, published in 1923 by Methuen and Company, Ltd. of London. Most of the papers in that collection are English translations by W. Perrett and G.B. Jeffery from the German Das Relativatsprinzip, 4th ed., published by in 1922 by Tuebner. All of these sources are now in the public domain; this document, derived from them, remains in the public domain and may be reproduced in any manner or medium without permission, restriction, attribution, or compensation.

The footnote is as it appeared in the 1923 edition. The 1923 English translation modified the notation used in Einstein's 1905 paper to conform to that in use by the 1920's; for example, c denotes the speed of light, as opposed the V used by Einstein in 1905. In this paper Einstein uses L to denote energy; the italicised sentence in the conclusion may be written as the equation "m = L/c?" which, using the more modern E instead of L to denote energy, may be trivially rewritten as "E = mc?".

Wow! You've wasted more square inches of SAGG than anyone else. You are currently the frontrunner for the 2006 Trident prize?

My favorite, other than the statement about radium salts is:
================================================
"Neglecting magnitudes of fourth and higher orders we may place


From this equation it directly follows that:-- "

Brilliant ... truly brilliant. Only a painter with nothing but white paint and an empty canvas can rival your clarity of thought and presentation.
