Michelson-Morley experiment, an attempt to detect the velocity of the Earth with respect to the hypothetical luminiferous ether, a medium in space proposed to carry light waves.

IN COLLECTIONS. Books to Borrow. Books for People with Print Disabilities. Internet Archive : Roemer concluded that the speed of light-though great-is finite. Since then a number of techniques have been used to measure the speed of light. Among the most important were those carried out by the American Albert Michelson (). Michelson used a rotating mirror in a series of high-precision experiments as diagrammed in figure Size: 51KB. Now, The speed of rotation of mirror M 1 can be measured by using stroboscope. In Michelson's original experiment, the speed of the motor was about rev/s and d was about 35 km. he obtained a value of x 10 8 ms-1 for speed of light in vacuum.. The modern methods of measuring speed of light use coherent laser beams and radar signals and give results with . Compare book prices from over , booksellers. Find Michelson and the Speed of Light.
