During the past twenty-five years, I discovered 25 errors and lapses of ?insight', or ?understanding', which usually results in the lack of important knowledge applicable in the science of physics of today. Of course, all of the errors and lapses need to be corrected. And exactly this is the aim or purpose of my present, and maybe last ever to be offered, paper.
The author has been preaching (or: teaching) for many years in NPA conferences that our ?club of dissident physicists? should avoid repeating errors common amongst textbook physicists. Nevertheless, a further one (= error) appeared in our 2007 session: the error of an ?expanding universe? (according to Hubble). ? Of course, I (the author) was aware of this ?Hubble(d) flop?, but thought that all other club members had also already spotted it as a blatant error as well. This item will be treated in sufficient details in this paper. And more.
Up to 12 items of present day teachings in theoretical physics, worldwide, are reconsidered and tested as to their truth. And all of them fail to pass the test. Corrections will briefly be explained. The items are:
- Universal creation by one "Big Bang"
- Solar systems creation from "dark matter"
- Circling of electrons in atoms
- Neutron as an elementary particle
- The structure of neutrinos
- Sizes of atom nuclei
- Group velocity / delay
- A missing 5th Maxwell equation
- Nuclear forces other than electromagnetism
- Nonsense taught by Heisenberg
- Nonsense taught by Feynman
- Nonsense taught by Gell-Mann
Personal data about the author will be mentioned (Appendix).
Initially, the Nobel Prize for physics awarding of 2006 is criticized as erroneous. Then, older errors of physics (also caused by mathematicians) are treated. Of course, Einstein's (AE) errors (=relativity, Lorentz transform) are considered. Then he (AE) is compared with his only serious competitor Bohr (NB). Result is that NB's ?achievements? are more sever in terms of physical errors than the inheritance AE has left.
The author has been an NPA member for about 15 years or so, and has, during that period of time, presented papers on physical topics in most of their conferences. The present paper is intended as a brief summary of the most important results of all previous papers that this author has presented in said conferences.
The following notions or conceptions introduced into the teachings of physics between approximately the 1860?s and the 1970?s will be considered, and their correctness investigated.
- The Second Law of thermodynamics
- Maxwell?s equations (of the 1860?s)
- The Lorentz force law
- Planck?s constant (1900)
- Models of the elementary particles and atoms (by J.J. Thompson)
- The theory of relativity (1900?s)
- Electron movement in atoms
- Black holes
- The proton (1910?s)
- The Pauli principle
- The de-Broglie wave
- Three different quantum mechanics
- The Heisenberg relation (1920?s)
- The neutron
- The neutrino
- The strong nuclear interaction (1930?s-40?s)
- Atom diameters
- The M?ssbauer effect (1950?s)
- Feynman graphs
- Quantum chromodynamics (1960?s)
Practically all cited items or complexes would, for a thorough treatment, require chains of equations as well as graphical displays. The author refrains from offering any in the present paper, since they are available in his books.
The most challenging unsolved problem of physics of this century is the question of where the electrons are located in the atoms and how they "behave". The solution is presented via a new atom model, created in the nineties of our century. This model does, for being calculable, not need the nonsense of "quantum mechanics" of the twenties. For it, classical (Newtonian) mechanics is absolutely adequate. We confine the investigation to monovalent elements. Even here we have three different conditions: metallic atoms or molecules, nonmetallic (or insulator) ones, and the H/H2 case. This requires three different equations, which are obtained as the second derivatives of locus functions of time. Analytical integration yields the first derivative, the Schrodinger equation alike. The new (subharmonic) differential equations differ from Schrodinger's insofar as the right hand side is under a square root sign. The next integration in each case is numerical. Results are presented.
