How heavy would a man who weighs 100 kilo on earth, weigh in a balloon 50 kilometres high?
According to Newtonian Gravity you suss it out in this way:
The Earth’s radius is about 6400km and gravity is proportional to the square of the distance from the earths surface. So a man who weighed 100 kg on the surface would weigh about
100kg×((6400/6450) squared)) ≈ 98.5kg in a balloon 50km above the surface.
Well guess what? No-one has checked this. And it ought to be clear to you that Newton did not have this data. But we have been able to check this sort of thing for maybe the last 50 years. This is the question I bandied about:
“What empirical evidence proves the inverse-square law for gravity?
What I am after is for someone to prove this alleged law empirically. If the empirical evidence is not there then the law will be wrong. Since science is not about dumb luck or informed guesses only.”
They didn’t have anything. They have not sent any robot weighing gear up in a balloon. They aren’t testing gravity meters that people use for prospecting in a controlled environment. You could hover over a huge sphere of tungsten and see what it did for your gravity meter. Then put the same tungsten ball under 20 metres of water. Keep working on your tests and working on your theory. They aren’t doing it. They won’t do it. Or if they have done it they won’t tell us.
I would myself like to come up with a better model but there is no data. They don’t seem to know how to do anything. They do not even know when a theory has been disproved.
Its obvious to me that if you tried to work with very many planets and moons, and you tried to use such crude formulae, the planets would not fucking want to orbit. And even if you could get them orbiting somebody’s would sneeze and everything would fall to pieces. Worlds would collide because the Newtonian system of gravity is inherently unstable.
Here is another question. This one is not my own but if I knew we had not been lied to by our oligarchy and denied a true understanding of Gravity then I may well want to ask the same sort of question:
“Why are physical laws like Gravitational Force free of additive constants?
Why is it that the formula for physical laws are so simple and pure mathematically?
The formula for gravitational force is F=G*m1*m2/r squared and not F=G*m1*m2/r squared +C.Why is it that mathematics even works for describing physical phenomenon? Why is it that physical laws can be stated using elementary functions?”
I told him is the reason is that they are lying. But my answer got down-voted.
Have the effects of horizontal velocity and acceleration on gravity been tested?
I asked the above question and of course its gotten no answer. Because everyone knows there are no such public tests.
Well how does gravity really work? What understanding of gravity explains the habit of planets to orbit rather than crash?
