# Light Rays in a Moving Passenger Car

November 10 2017 at 12:20 AM
nakayama

A passenger car is standing. From the same height of the front and the rear inner walls each, a light ray is being sent downward at a 5 degree. At the center of the car, a tiny sensor is set. The sensor responds to two rays and the third light source is lighting. Now, the other passenger car is passing by. From this passenger car, the third light will be visible also. Regardless of its speed.

Above picture will show that almost all the similar pictures (Light Rays in a Moving Passenger Car) in books are wrong. Only the emission theory will be possible to explain these.

In outer space, a mirror is reflecting a star light. It is evident that propagation of reflected light and incident light is different (reflected light follows the emission theory).

 On following pictures that show light rays in a moving passenger car, the formula of Lorentz contraction will be invalid. 1) From a light source set on the rear inner wall, a light ray (slanted downward at a 5 degrees) is being sent to a mirror on the front wall. Light path draws oblique sides of isosceles triangle. 2) In above picture, the light source is somewhat apart from the rear inner wall. Light path does not draw isosceles triangle. 3) Two light sources each set on the rear wall and the front wall is sending a light ray to the facing wall. Light path each is one way.

 There are two passenger cars. In each passenger car, a light source is set on the right inner wall and is sending a light ray (horizontally) to the left wall. In front of an observer (stands on the ground), one passenger car is moving to the right and the other passenger car is to the left (at the same speed). How does relativity explain ?

 When there are plural light sources in a moving passenger car, pictures shown in books will not stand up.

 In a moving passenger car, a light ray is being sent. On the ground, there is an observer. In a picture on a light clock, the light ray follows passenger car's motion. In a picture on relativity of simultaneity, it doesn't (by spherical waves, more clear, will be).

 In a moving passenger car, planetarium is projected. Position of stars will be the same also to an observer stands on the ground. Spherical waves will follow passenger car's motion.

 On the moon's surface, there is a passenger car. To the roof, waves of sun-light (plane waves) are coming horizontally. In the roof, there is a small hole. When the passenger car moves to the right (or to the left), a point of light projected on the floor will move. Moon's motion will have an effect (on the point of light) also. The angle of light ray (in the passenger car) will not be 90 degrees. Aether will be measurable.

 From the roof of a passenger car, several light rays are emitted down radially (at intervals of ten degrees). How is this moving passenger car explained ?

 From the roof of a passenger car, light ray is emitted diagonally downward (to the right at a 45 degree angle). One passenger car is moving to the right, the other passenger car is moving to the left at the same speed. To an observer who stands on the ground, the length of two light rays is different.

 A passenger car is moving to the right. A light ray (frequency is constant) is sent from the source set on the rear wall and is reflected by the front wall and returns to the rear wall. Path forms angle bracket > (acute angle). There is an observer on the ground. In front of him, imagine a vertical line. The passenger car passes the line. Frequency of two light paths is different and wavelength is the same (number of waves is an invariant). According to that formula: v = f λ, light speed is different. Above picture seems to show also that pictures on relativity of simultaneity or on Lorentz contraction (a moving passenger car is shown in books) must be reexamined.

 In a passenger car, slender tube is standing vertically. Light emitted from the source set on the roof is passing through the tube and a spot light is visible on the floor. The passenger car is moving. Observers in the car and stands on the ground each will see the same spot light. Many pictures (on light rays in a moving passenger car) in books will be wrong. The emission theory will be true.

 I posted the following into the other thread. Allow me to post it again, please. A passenger car is moving. Two light rays are sent from a source (frequency is constant) set on the floor and are reflected by mirrors set on the roof and are coming back to the source (the light path forms oblong letter V). Number of waves that stays on the path is the same to an observer stands on the ground (because it's an invariant). This picture will support the emission theory. It will deny constancy of light speed, Lorentz contraction and relativity of simultaneity.

 Allow me to add the following to my previous post (Dec 13). Imagine a photon that hits an atom on the floor (of the moving passenger car). This atom is excited. The position of this atom is the same to every observer. Emission theory will be true.
