Thoughts on the Biefeld-Brown Effect
Keywords: Biefeld-Brown, electrogravitics, electrokinetics
This is a preliminary quantification of the Biefeld-Brown effect. The approach has four principal features: (1) the equivalence of acceleration and gravitation is applied to elementary charges; (2) the net mass of the charges becomes imaginary when v > c in a dielectric; (3) the upward acceleration of an electrified capacitor is obtained through the application of an imaginary gravitational constant to the imaginary mass; and (4) ?rescaling? the acceleration of charge leads to the same result as in (3), but without recourse to imaginary quantities.
