Piccard-Kessler?s Experiment vs. Lorentz Contraction
Year: 2002 Pages: 4
Keywords: Lorentz contraction, Heaviside potential, Piccard-Kessler's experiment.
According to the generally accepted opinion, the electric field of a moving charge has the form of oblate revolution ellipsoid in accordance with the Lorentz contraction formula. This picture, however, contradicts the known experiment based on the gas-efflux method.
