This is the wrong thread for this. We already explained it to you. Just brecause you claim that no defense was offered it doesn't make it true. In fact little of what you claim has ever been true.No one has yet offered a defence for the invention of the terms passive and active gravitational mass ...
Do they have any use ???? do they help our calculations , or help explain previously unexplained experimental results?
I suggest to you again there is just MASS ...
Two masses exert a force on each other as per Newtons equation ... neither mass is either 'passive' or 'active' ....
Still no explanation of the terms passive and active gravitational mass ...This is the wrong thread for this. We already explained it to you. Just brecause you claim that no defense was offered it doesn't make it true. In fact little of what you claim has ever been true.
For those who are smarter than Oz see the article I wrote here: https://arxiv.org/abs/0709.0687
I already explained all of this to Oz who was unable to grasp it. For example: Inertial mass acts in one dimension only and for that reason any stress in a body in motionm contributes to the inertial mass in the direction of motion of the body. Not so in active gravitational mass which acts in three dimensions.
For example: Suppose the body in question has the same stress in all directions such as a gas would be in a box. Then only the factor P enters into the math formula. However in the case of gravitation the factor 3P enters into the math formula.
However this was already explained to Oz and it went right over his head. Hence the reason he's in my ignore list and why its so rare that I read or respond to him - i.e. almost all of what he posts is nonsense. E.g. he once claimed that car batteries can never explode contrary to the fact that many have and thus its not only possible but its happed many times and will keep on happening. Especially if they try to learn from Oz!
The greatest problem with Oz is his inability to admit when he's wrong .. which is almost always.
lol ....That's all very interesting ...and is a fairly accurate outline of my understandings ....Without even reading Oz's response (since I know better) I can say with absolute certainty that again he's clueless. I responded to show newcomers what we're dealing with when it comes to Oz. Hint: He also claims that the government is hiding the truth about UFOs, they're hiding aliens at Area 52 and he claims to have proof that time travelers from the future have visited us in the present. That along with any other conspiracy he can dream up. Oh yeah. He also claims that man never landed on the moon. Never mind the mountain of evidence that we have and absolute lack of evidence that we haven't.
