New look at relativity: Electrons can't exceed the speed of light -- thanks to light itself, says biologist

November 19, 2010, Cornell University

When resolving why electrons can never beat the speed limit set by light, it might be best to forget about time. Thanks to insight from studying movement inside a biological cell, it seems that light itself -- not the relativity of time -- may be the traffic cop, according to a Cornell University biologist.

Any space with a temperature above consists of . As a result of the , the moving electron experiences the photons crashing into the front of it as being blue-shifted, and the photons colliding with the back of it as being red-shifted. Since blue-shifted photons exert more momentum than red-shifted photons, the photons themselves exert a counterforce on the moving electron, just as the cytoplasm in a cell exerts a viscous force on the moving organelles. The viscous force that arises from the Doppler-shifted photons prevents electrons from exceeding the speed of light, according to Randy Wayne, associate professor of plant biology.

Wayne's research, "Charged Particles Are Prevented From Going Faster Than the Speed of Light by Light Itself: A Biophysical Cell Biologist's Contribution to Physics," appears in the November 2010 issue of Acta Physica Polonica B.

On determining whether electrons can surpass the speed of light, Albert Einstein's special contends that electrons are prevented from exceeding the speed of light as a result of the relativity of time. But Wayne contends that Einstein didn't take the environment through which the move into account.

"Given the prominence of viscous forces within and around cells and the experience of identifying and quantifying such resistive forces, biophysical cell biologists have an unique perspective in discovering the viscous forces that cause moving particles to respond to an applied force in a nonlinear manner," he explained. "Consequently, light itself prevents charged particles from moving faster than the ."

Wayne will publish a related paper, "The Relativity of Simultaneity: An Analysis Based on the Properties of Electromagnetic Waves," in a forthcoming volume of the African Physical Review, which is a juried publication.

This is a kind of circular argument because it is based on the premise that photons are red and blue shifted. So you then have to ask yourself where the shift comes from and that brings you, ultimately, back to relativity.

I am reminded of an experiment I did (badly) at university years ago. The object was to measure the speed of light. Unfortunately I devised a method that involved knowledge of a fundamental constant that was itself derived from knowledge of the speed of light. So I was only able to make my measurement because somebody else had already measured the speed of light using a different method.

Is it just me, or don't photons EVER exert force? That would mean they have mass (F=ma)which is fundamentally not a photon characteristic. I'm not a physics professor so the likelihood of me overlooking something is quite big. However if photons can exert force, that would open up some interesting concepts...

Ps. note: "Any space with a temperature above absolute zero consists of photons." can someone elaborate on why?

charged particles from exceeding the speed..

Photons do exert a tiny force on impact. This momentum is the basis behind the practial application of solar sails. Its momentum p is given by p = h/lambda (h being Planck's constant, and lambda the wavelength of the light). Another weird aspect of light's particle/wave duality.

This theory is nice, but it applies just to charged particles. The noncharged particles aren't influenced with the photon field apparently, so they should exhibit a smaller drag, then the charged ones. So if we compare the energy required for acceleration of proton and neutron to the same speed, we should observe a difference. I'm in doubt, we could detect such a difference.

Even more problematic is the viscous character of photon breaking. If I understood this theory well after few minutes of reading, every charged particle should be decelerated with photon field to zero speed - which is actually not, what we can observe in vacuum.

But charged particles DO exceed the speed of light in materials, since the lights slows down by the factor of the index of refraction while the particle continues moving through at less than the vacuum speed of light, giving us the phenomenon of Cherenkov radiation which is one of the primary methods of particle detector experiments.

@Nanoparticler

WRONG-- at least mostly
solar sails are a charged material designed to interact with other charged materials -- light carries no charge. The solar wind however is made of free electrons and protons with energies between 10 and 100 keV.

F=ma applies for object of significant size (larger than a few molecules) and less than maybe one-tenth of the speed of light. It is an
approximation that works very well in non-extreme situations. Light is not a particle in the strictest sense. It behaves as a bundle of waves. Its energy works out to be proportional to its frequency. Its momentum works out to be proportional to its wavelength. Light only exerts enough force to affect individual particles. To analyze the universe on the level of individual particles, quantum mechanics is required.

< taken from http://www.newton...0222.htm >

It is not necessary for light to have a mass in order to have a force. It must have momentum. Now let us see how this works without it getting too
complicated- which it is.
Given:The speed of light in a vacuum is a constant, c (m/sec). The energy of a photon of light, call it W(joules), is W = h*(nu), where h = Planck's constant (joule*sec) and (nu) is the frequency of the light in (1/sec).

The momentum of photon, call it p(kg*cm/sec) = W(joules)/c(cm/sec). Recall that energy in joules is in units (kg*m^2/sec^2),so W/c=p has
units (kg*m/sec) which is the units of momentum!
And the force (pressure*area) acts in the direction of propagation of the
light.

It all works out the same whether you treat light classically (Maxwell's equations) or quantum mechanically, but it is the momentum that is the
critical variable, and in the case of light you can't separate it into mass*speed, it is "lumped" together.

but charged particles DO exceed the speed of light in materials

In this case the background photon field serves as such material. What we know, this field is basically at rest (if we neglect the Doppler shift anisotropy). Such field would therefore introduce a reference frame for all charged bodies. Many heavy atoms, some semiconductors including graphene and superconductors contain electrons which are moving in speed, which is close to speed of light. If you would take such material to trip with high, but subluminal speed, a strange things would happen, because the total speed of electrons and rocket would exceed the speed of light with respect to this reference frame. Maybe it could explain some Podkletnov's experiments.

Light is not a particle in the strictest sense. It behaves as a bundle of waves.
It behaves like bundle of subtle particles, too. I explained it here with undulating foam concept in the role of vacuum. Such foam becomes more dense temporarily, when being shaken like soap foam in evacuated vessel. Therefore every light wave is behaving like fast traveling particle, which is doing vacuum slightly more dense at the place, where such wave is actually moving.

You can think about it like about tsunami wave, traveling across ocean. Such wave deforms water surface at the place, where such waves is moving momentarily - so it makes it larger for any other particle or wave, which is spreading along it. So that every wave would slow down the propagation of another waves like slightly more dense virtual environment, i.e. like some voluminous blobby particle, i.e. photon.

There's no other way to accelerate electrons besides using electric or magnetic fields, right? And this force is transmitted by virtual photons according to quantum theory.

So if the force used to provide acceleration is light, of course the object can't exceed the speed of light! Am I missing something?

Good Grief! How does something like this get published at a "scientific" site?

From my perspective, the simplest way of looking at the light speed limit is to look at the relativistic mass. The bottom line is that nothing with mass can exceed the speed of light because it would take an infinite amount of force to get it to the speed of light:

http://en.wikiped...lativity

This simply precludes anything with mass - not just an electron from reaching the speed of light (where the mass increases without bounds as the massive particle approaches the speed of light). Why does this goofball biologist think that accelerators require so much energy? It is because accelerating any particle with mass requires increasing energy with speed. Absolute tripe.

Crookes radiometer. This isn't so clear-cut. Most of those devices spin the 'wrong' way if radiation pressure was the motive force. The vanes have light & dark colored sides, leading to temp gradients. Faster molecules from the warmer vane side strike the vane edges obliquely and impart a higher force than the colder molecules. The effect is also known as thermal creep, since it causes gases to creep along a surface that has a temp gradient. The net movement of the vane due to the tangential forces around the edges is away from the warmer gas and towards the cooler gas, with the gas passing around the edge in the opposite direction. The effect is just as if there were a greater force on the black side of the vane, leading to vane spin

One could only get away with a "photonic fog" that is on-net Doppler-shifted with respect to a charged particle's motion, if one presumed an absolute (privileged) frame of reference that would experience no such net shift.

If this were the case, we could empirically detect motion in an absolute sense, thus undermining most of Relativity's theoretical underpinnings -- and yes, reverting back to some sort of an "aether" construct.

Here's an experiment to try: take a pair of closely-spaced metallic plates, such as used to measure the Casimir Effect. Now sensitively measure the attractive force between the plate pair. Now rotate the plate pair by 90 degrees around an axis embedded in the plate plane. Measure force again. Repeat with an axis orthogonal to the first one. Absolute motion through photonic fog will result in force differences between the plate pairs, depending on plate orientation in space (that is, assuming the Casimir Effect mechanism is correctly derived from theory.)

How did that crap get published? One interesting concept and then off into, well someplace not quite in touch with actual physics.
If I understood this theory well after few minutes of reading
Clearly you didn't if you didn't notice that light AND electrons are limited by the same principle. Light is NOT what keeps ANYTHING from going faster than C, mass is.
- which is actually not, what we can observe in vacuum.
So then why did you say the theory was nice? I take it then this an indication that you don't understand that theories have to fit the evidence to qualify as theories. Otherwise they are simply wrong, like this one.

Not quite. They have a mass exactly equal to the energy of their energy which is dependent on their frequency alone. They have no REST mass.
"Any space with a temperature above absolute zero consists of photons." can someone elaborate on why?
Because the temperature is from photons, without them there the temperature would zero IF the temperature of Nothing had meaning. That part was clever of the biologist. So clever he took he fell in love with it. Always an iffy thing.

I have some ideas I think are clever. I try not fall in love with them because that way leads to Cranking.

There IS background radiation and it certainly SHOULD interact with electrons.

Lasers are used in labs to slow down particles so we also have actual experience with light slowing things down.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.


So I think you were wrong. That part the biologist seems to have right. But that isn't why electrons can't go faster than C. It would take infinite energy to accelerate ANY object that has a rest mass to C so going faster than C is just plain not going to happen. That part he got wrong.

It may be just how the article is written by physorg. He may still understand that mass increases as c is approached, but is describing a epiphenomenon in a closed system of photons and electrons.

The following is not correct so Wayne idea may be misstated as well.

You're right, your debating skills suck,
Is that all you can do. Pretend I said things I didn't.
you truly do need me don't you?
No. If I need to point out idiocy I there is always Marjon.
There are many valid points you could make to win here,
Yes. And I use many of them.
unfortunately you keep clinging to ones that aren't there.
If that was true it would be fortunate for you. It isn't. Lying simply doesn't make things true no matter how times you do it.
Open your hand, see...it's empty.
Gosh that was brilliant and so meaningful.
Keep working that "polemic muscle" of yours, if nothing else it'll keep your hands busy.
I am curious, Zephyr, why did you bother posting that example of lame writing and foolish lies? You don't have to answer, the question is rhetorical, but I am curious as to why you act the way you do.

If I had lost my mind long enough to write such meaningless drivel I would have wiped the box and started over.

And lastly (hopefully), so what if zephir has a thousand identities on here.
Not a thousand yet. Its dishonest is what. And many of the profiles have lies in them on top of all being YOU.
If he is right with what he says then what he says is right
But you aren't right.
t, if he's wrong with what he says then he's wrong. Big frickin deal.
Except when you lie about others and use the logins to pretend that you are different people agreeing with each other in a pathetic attempt to show support where it does not exist.
What is he a criminal mastermind that all of you genius detectives must locate and expose.
No. Just a pathetic lying troll that is wasting space.
THESE ARE COMMENTS.
Yes and so is this. This is a comment on the mendacious actions of a pathetic troll.
I'd rather listen to his deluded take on reality than listen to your witch hunt.
Its a troll hunt and you are listening to yourself.

You seem to think it’s not true as long as you deny it. You're only fooling yourself, idiot.

The evidence proves it: your crank logic, the tell-tale syntax errors that we who speak English as a first language can identify instantly, the voting record, etc.

Note in your Activity page that with few exceptions only your puppets “KwasniczJ” and “Undo” gave you 5-star votes: http://www.physor...activity

In this thread http://www.physor...ram.html you used your puppet “Undo” to try to pull off EXACTLY the same trick you tried to pull off here: asking a question of your “TDK” puppet to create an illusion that somebody gave a crap about your rubbish posts. Skeptic_Heretic saw right through it. Then you used your puppet “telekinetic” to praise yourself in the same thread on Oct 29th. Playing “dress-up” with an army of puppets doesn’t create an illusion of consensus; it just shows what a creepy, lying, freakish A-Hole you are.

Sure there is.
let's say that I do have multiple personas here (which I don't),
You have two on this thread alone.
what type of evidence would it take to prove this? Rationalize that for me please.
Oh talking to yourself under two different names for one. And no I can't rationalize your behavior. You could. You could quit thinking that everyone is too stupid to figure out your multiple logins.
What would I have to gain from all of these accounts?
Again you have to answer that yourself. I don't need to know your motivation. I am curious but I don't need to know that to discern a pattern.
You really can't be this stupid, can you?
No I am not stupid enough to think you only have one name on this thread.

Same here.
And then only to eradicate the effects of the cheating.

How do you eradicate the effects of hundreds of pages of rubbish being dumped into this site every month? And you'd have to uprank yourself to "correct" the problem, which wouldn't make you any better than him.

He hasn't been doing it lately as far as I have been able to see. Last time I went to war over this he was downranking me, though inconsistently, with more than one sockpuppet. Since it hasn't happened this time around I don't see the need for extreme responses on my part.
How do you eradicate the effects of hundreds of pages of rubbish being dumped into this site every month?
I just point out that its rubbish. That is enough for me. Oh and I downrank the more egregious stuff. Which is rather a lot of it.

We get a lot of Cranks here and I am not going to say they add much to the site but they do add something. In moderation. One Crank pretending to be two or more and having a conversation with itself does strikes me as a bit much.

So. many things wrong with this article. where to begin...

Ok let's go with the crank triggers first. There are some Usenet groups devoted to relativity that have been taken over by a handful of anti-relativity cranks... most of which do the multiple sock puppet account thing, have never bothered to read the theory, yet continue to argue against what they reluctantly admit they haven't read and all support some kind of eather theory. Posting irresponsible, random thoughts from someone who clearly is not familiar with the basics of relativity, yet has some kind of scientific credential just throws gasoline on their fire.

Second, this is NOT a new idea. I'd imagine that this idea crossed most of our minds in our early stages of studying relativity.

Third, this idea is just so obviously wrong to those that understand special relativity. Obviously, the first question to toss back to the /biologist/ is "in which time frame?"
...continued...
KwasniczJ
1 / 5 (15) Nov 22, 2010
I'd say instead, the whole problem is in fact, you're not intelligent enough to distinguish "Zephir" from other posters here - don't you think? Which can make a perception of "dissociative identity disorder" for you.

BTW Not all ideas violating relativity must be wrong necessarily. For example, quantum mechanics is violating relativity in many orders of magnitude and it's still considered seriously. Which makes rather wide space for another ideas violating relativity too.
CSharpner
5 / 5 (6) Nov 22, 2010
...continued...
This question is not asked to engage in discussion, but as an illustration to the student to invoke critical thought towards his own idea with the hope of him quickly realizing the err in his premise. If he cannot comprehend the problem with his postulate, then he probably doesn't understand the first thing about special relativity.

The fact that this random thought from someone not in the field made it all the way into an article on a usually good and legitimate scientific web site is mind boggling.
Ethelred

No Zephyr, we do know you're Zephyr. It really isn't that hard to tell. You once even used that as an excuse for continuing the same reprehensible behavior.

Only this time you made an ass of yourself with toxic spew.

Pretending to be civil again as if we didn't know it is still Zephyr. One you know we know is Zephyr. Then again maybe you don't know. You learn real slow.

I take it then, that you are going to shut down the VK1 sockpuppet for a while.

Apologize to everyone. And I mean everyone at Physorg.

Otto is getting down ranked for trolling and being inflammatory instead of insightful. Just because Otto thinks Otto is insightful it doesn't mean that Otto is insightful. All the time anyway. Otto is CAPABLE of insight which is why he is treated rather better than Zephyr or Marjon.

Unfortunately Otto is capable of barefaced trolling of rather low quality in ways that speak poorly of Otto's character.

Zephyr the MultiNamedTroll is calling people trolls. That is typical of Zephyr's hypocrisy. Sends people nasty small minded notes under one name and then pretends that Zephyr

Didn't do it because it was someone else
Isn't here
Can't spell Zephyr
That it's OK to use multiple logins SPECIFICALLY to deceive
That having conversations with himself is somehow useful and not deceptive because he wasn't both people. Even after botching his fake logins by losing track of which fake was at the moment

Just because Zephyr is stupid enough to believe Zephyr's own bull it doesn't mean that anyone else does.

Only an idiot could think that EVERYONE is that stupid. Zepyr's every post is an ad-homonym attack on everyone here because to think that Zephyr could actually be fooling anyone for a long is insulting the intelligence of everyone here.

So strike back. I am doing that to MysticOxymoron until he stops. I know I made a post about haven given him 24 hours of grace before I started retaliating to see if he would behave himself.

You might want to recheck the order of events on this thread.

VK1 goes berserk
People comment on Zephyr's behavior under that Login
Otto's questions the idea that VK1 = Zephyr
Otto quotes something VK1-Zephyr wrote because he thought the English was too American for Zephyr.

Then you posted this:
But hey, way to chime in on behalf of the site dung beetle, otto, how very noble.


At which point Otto went Otto.

Which isn't too surprising since you accused of supporting Zephyr when he was only questioning whether VK1 = Zephyr.

Going toxic like you have on Otto is counter productive. Emulating Otto's bad behavior is hardly the way to get him to change.

He isn't a single person. He's a consortium of uneducated anti-science hacks, probably also part of the marjon/kevinrtrs misology gang.

Look at the progression from slav cadence, to proper english cadence, to americanized english in his posts above. It is amazingly sharp. There are certainly multiple people posting under the VK1 account. This is probably why VK1 answered himself.

Thankyou for the defense. In my opinion I have never acted like a troll, although it might seem as such if one were to join an exchange after the Pudelfuzz began to fly. Your accurate sequence of events is typical of engagements: otto is attacked either directly or assaulted by ignorance... Otto replies.

I respond to trolls. If you continue to refer to me as a sometimes troll, it gives trolls license to judge me as such whenever they don't like what I have to say, and start jumping up and down and wetting their pants. While amusing, as you say this is not productive.

otto1932 confuses "nazi-like preaching" with "nazi-like person".
Frajo confuses honest criticism of religion of the sort otto expressed, with Nazism. It was not, and otto proved this. Frajo can't admit the error. Frajo also fails to equate attempts at censorship by the group of unfavorable opinions and facts as similar in content and degree.
otto1932 reminds me very much of my younger brothers in those days.
Frajo fails to recognize similar behavior in those who bait otto, and actually encourages it by giving out 5/5 Pudelbiscuits for it.
otto1832 talks of injustice when he can't stand the heat whipped up by himself.
-And frajo indulges in similar juvenile behaviors, thereby exposing a duplicitous nature.
Need a new nappy?
-And otto displays unparalleled wit which pretty much excuses anything he does.

Haven't posted here in a while. This is not how I remembered the comment threads on this site. Though comment threads are notoriously immature and filled with trolls, I never had experienced that here. VK1 you have really done a disservice to physorg, the other posters here and yourself. I think maybe you should just take some time to reflect on yourself (Although, clearly you are not the type of person who takes advice). Your ego seems to be the most important thing to you. We are surrounded by a beautiful and mysterious physical world and your descriptions of it are not doing it any justice at all.

Very interesting that you think I am this person Dick. I just came here, read the article and read the thread buddy. Your're really making a fool of yourself from my perspective. Anyone who would make multiple accounts on a science site - so they could cheat to get more blue stars and have conversations with them self, is a complete failure at life...

Yep, reminds me of you otto. I've never voted myself up, not once. You have. You're doing it right now, in fact. Way to go, slugger, you've reached rock bottom! ;D
Which only causes you to expend more hours downrating me with your crack team of alter egos. I'll keep baiting you and keep demonstrating your sickness to the community.

Way to go, slugger, you've reached rock bottom! ;D
