Title: On Mach's Principle
Author: Assis A.K.T.
Abstract: We propose the postulate that the resultant force acting on any body is zero. With this postulate and with a Weber force law for gravitation, we obtain equations of motion and conclude that all inertial forces are due to gravitational interaction with other bodies in the universe, as suggested by Mach. We then obtain the same value for the advance of the perhelion of the planets as is given by general relativity. All this is accomplished in a strictly relational theory. Finally, we relate these points to topical questions of electrodynamics raised by the experimental studies of Graneau and Pappas. © 1989 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
