Demonstration of Principle of Equivalence Failure with Umbrella Test
As he had proposed, I hope that the distance of the violet spheres would not change with the radial expansion hypothesis.
Looking at the figure above, I expected the radial expansion of the stems (in red), but the conservation of the parallel dashed lines (in yellow), in order to obtain the illusion of attraction between the violet spheres.
I perfected the test proposal using an umbrella, because in this way I would have in the experiment the expansion component of the terrestrial radius, as shown below:
I hope the red and blue lead balls would keep their way close to each other during the opening of the umbrella.
But, it was not what happened ...
I filmed the experiment with a computer camera. I selected the images contained at the time of opening the frame of an automatic spring-opening umbrellas.
At the four-corner ends of the umbrella mechanism were lead spheres and fishing buoys to facilitate the capture of the images:
By observing the sequence of the film frames (above), from top to bottom, as well as from left to right, one sees a seemingly straight trajectory on the part of all the spheres.
The expected conservation of the distance between the twin spheres did not occur.
Two Possible Conclusions:
1 - The Cavendish Experiment is a fraud, or;
2 - The Principle of Equivalence is false.
