Quantifying light's orbital speed equivalent.
Frank Russo - November 28, 2012. (Revised December 7, 2012).
Those who have been following my Michelson-Morley work, would know that the orbital speed of the earth of 53,198,115.45 m/sec can be viewed as amended, when one replaces the motion of the earth with that of light for the same distance for the purpose of itemizing the respective orbital time in terms of light segments.
In a normal 11 m segment, (and not the short-cut 10.83079918 m), where the speeds are towards each other, light would travel 9.219896174 m and the apparatus mirror component needed to be bridged on the return trip to make up 11 m., would be 1.780103832 m. However when moving together, light has an actual 1.921923284 m of orbital space still to bridge after travelling the full 11 metres! Hence its "orbital speed equivalent" encounters a slowing down factor of 1.780103832/1.921923284 or 0.926209618. When one amends this light segment, one gets an "orbital speed equivalent" for light - along the orbit with the 'wind' - of 49,272,606.2 and it's this figure that would occupy the denominator of an orbital fraction of orbital time as if it was one second of light's orbital speed equivalent!
This has all been shown before in my previous work of years gone by, and this elucidation is purely added so as to make its comprehension less arcane. Hopefully this is appreciated.
