Bemerkungen zu Einsteins Berechnung der periodischen Schwankungen der Tageslänge, welche durch die Partialfluten des Mondes verursacht werden.
Abstract
The paper reexamines the calculations of Einstein (1919), in which he demonstrated that partial tides of the moon caused fluctuations in the moment of inertia of the earth, leading to periodic fluctuations in the length of day. Einstein proposed that this phenomenon is responsible for the apparent fluctuations in the longitude of the ascending node of the moon, which had previously been ascribed to a nonNewtonian gravitational effect. It is pointed out that the fluctuations calculated by Einstein may be detectable with the use of atomic clocks.
