The screen effect of the Earth in the TETG. Theory of a screening experiment of a sample body at the equator, using the Earth as a screen.
Abstract
The acceleration of gravity, g, is calculated at the same point on the earth's surface for the cases of the equator at midday and at midnight. The calculations are for an ellipsoid of revolution of the earth around an axis projected from the plane of the equator. Values of g are calculated in terms of the Newton and electrothermodynamical theories, for the earth, sun, and the centrifugal rotation and revolution of the earth. The results are presented in tabular form for the midday and midnight cases, and calculations are conducted to verify the total differences between the two points, for the two theoretical frameworks, by means of a pendulum and a ballistic gravimeter.
