Return To Classical Physics pdf

David Michalets self-published a pdf for unrestricted distribution titled Return To Classical Physics.

Here is the author’s summary of the document:

A Return to Classical Physics

Einstein derailed physics by distorting its foundation set by Newton and Maxwell. Perhaps this solid foundation can be recovered.

Isaac Newton defined absolute space and absolute time; both are independent of any observer. Newton defined the basic laws of motion ( like "F =ma") and also defined the force of gravity, which everyone standing on Earth recognizes. Gravity is a mutual force, meaning both are pulled toward the other. James Clerk Maxwell defined light as the propagation of synchronized electric and magnetic fields. These fields oscillate together, but there are no particles moving, like in a wave in water.

Albert Einstein, in just a few papers, crumbled this foundation.  In his space-time, an observer selecting a destination will have their path curved toward other objects, but those objects are unaffected. This path has the illusion of gravity. but since the other mass is unaffected as defined by the real force, this illusion is not real.  Many know Earth has a magnetic field. It also has an electric field because Earth has a negative charge. This field and charge are the basis of lightning bolts, because clouds develop a positive charge.  Any moving electric charge is affected by a magnetic field. Space-time uses only a gravitational field to affect the curved path. In the real world, there are charges, electric and magnetic fields, but space-time ignores them.  Einstein also had an unjustified assumption the constant speed of light was also the limit for unrelated behaviors,  like matter in motion, and forces. Space-time is a mistake for physics, which is the science of energy, forces, matter, and motion. Einstein was a theoretical physicist, so he needed no experiments. However, he reviewed the experiments by Max Planck on the photoelectric effect, and Einstein concluded light is a particle not a wave. When not understanding the experiment, one could get the illusion of a particle behavior.

When the community of physicists accepted Einstein's papers, the common understanding of forces, matter,  motion, and light was disrupted.

In the span from June  2020 to April 2021, I self-published 7 books about various facets of physics. I used Kindle Direct Publishing, so Amazon controls their distribution, in either paperback or Kindle download.

I believe it is possible to get physics back to a firm foundation, like the one defined by Newton and Maxwell, but many changes are required. I extracted my relevant content from those books, added, revised, and reformatted the 6x9 pages into 8.5 x 11 pages. To reduce the page count, pages often don't have a blank area near the bottom, which usually occurs between topics.

The result is a densely packed, very technical,  tedious narrative in 196 pages.  The goal is to be thorough and concise.
The reader must have some understanding of physics, to grasp the observations, theories, evidence, and conclusions being presented.

The content is deep. because it affects the altered fundamental assumptions of physics, which need a reconsideration.
