There are lot of fishy things going on in Modern Physics. Textbooks on Physics as well as all the official sources of Physics inform us that second law of Newton is F=ma (or modern form of F=dp/dt).

Anything questioning this stance is straight regarded as crack-pottery. But I dared to question this. I have had intense debates with experts on this topic many times.

Here I choose to not go into the details. Topic is lengthy and I should write a book on this subject. Here I am only telling that recently I had debate with a PhD Physics person. When I sufficiently showed to him that in fact Newton did not say F=ma and that what actually he was saying can be described as F=mv.

That PhD Physics person then had to say following:

The fact is, Newton was not quite as careful and precise with words and definitions in 1687 as modern science and mathematics (and yes, textbooks) demand.

09-07-2019 – By a person “PhD in Theoretical Physics”.

The brief background is that I confronted him that Newton did not say F=ma; instead he said F=mv.

Now he tried hard to prove that Newton in fact said F=ma.

But I sufficiently proved my stance that in fact Newton was saying F=mv instead of F=ma.

At this point … not only he … the experts in general tend to unduly favor textbooks stance. They do usually come to the point that … so what if Newton carelessly stated his law in a way that cannot be mathematically described as F=ma. But Textbooks reached to the better truth of F=ma which has passed ‘all the tests’.

My demand from them is that then please stop calling second law of motion as ‘Newton’s Second Law of Motion’.

If task is to present correct information in textbooks, then please inform the students that originally Newton presented F=mv. But textbooks reached to the better position of F=ma.

Above is their accepted truth that they do not openly present.

What they do not accept so far is that Newton was right in saying that F=mv and textbooks are wrong in the formulation of F=ma.

Yes … in my opinion … Newton was right. F=ma is a wrong formulation.

My demand from Science authorities is that please rename this law as “Euler’s Law of F=ma”.

I share following quote from Stanford Encyclopedia’s entry about Newton. The quote is saying that F=ma formulation is not traceable from within Principia. This quote also tells the name of person (Euler) who made this formulation F=ma as part of academic culture. This quote is also saying that textbook “Newtonian Physics” is actually “Euler’s Physics”.

Therefore my demand is … Instead of calling it (second law) Newton’s Law … Please call it Euler’s Law.

Isaac Newton (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

Euler was the central figure in turning the three laws of motion put forward by Newton in the Principia into Newtonian mechanics. These three laws, as Newton formulated them, apply to “point-masses,” a term Euler had put forward in his Mechanica of 1736. Most of the effort of eighteenth century mechanics was devoted to solving problems of the motion of rigid bodies, elastic strings and bodies, and fluids, all of which require principles beyond Newton’s three laws. From the 1740s on this led to alternative approaches to formulating a general mechanics, employing such different principles as the conservation of vis viva, the principle of least action, and d’Alembert’s principle. The “Newtonian” formulation of a general mechanics sprang from Euler’s proposal in 1750 that Newton’s second law, in an F=ma formulation that appears nowhere in the Principia, could be applied locally within bodies and fluids to yield differential equations for the motions of bodies, elastic and rigid, and fluids. During the 1750s Euler developed his equations for the motion of fluids, and in the 1760s, his equations of rigid-body motion. What we call Newtonian mechanics was accordingly something for which Euler was more responsible than Newton.

Stanford Encyclopedia is acknowledging that F=ma formulation appears nowhere in Principia.

Anyways, when experts do say that Newton was careless as he should have said F=ma which he failed and they say this thing only after finding that there is no way to escape, then my genuine demand is that please rename this law as Euler Law and stop calling it Newton’s law.

If they do not rename this law and keep calling Newton careless when they themselves fail to defend the stance that Newton has anything to do with F=ma thing … then their act of calling Newton as careless is kind of “Cat out of Bag Situation”.

Relativity Theory has survived more than 100 years and Big Bang Theory will also somehow complete its century. How powerful these theories are! We are told that scientists always struggle to devise (costly) methods to prove them wrong but every time these theories pass the test with flying colors.

Here I only say that they did not devise multi-million LIGO project only to disprove Einstein. There is no “Einstein was wrong” business in market. It is “Einstein was Correct” business which exists in market. Here I present two examples of my own interactions with representatives of science authorities that show that actually they have imposed an impassable barriers to ensure that their beloved theories may not be proven wrong by anyone.

First example is my interaction with a National level scientist (or representative of science) of my country in year 2007 when he told me that Editors of renowned science journals do not even bother to read any submission critical of Relativity Theory. Those submissions straight go to dustbin without anyone even read them:

Special Relativity is a closed case. We teach it to high school kids these days. The editor of the American Journal of Physics told me 30 years ago that he receives 10 attempts a month to question SR and dumps one as soon as he sees it.

Yes above discussion related to only Special Relativity. But we can guess that they might have done the same for any criticism of GR as well. But so far there is no hint for the “impassable barrier” which is the topic of this blog post. This hint mainly comes from personal experiences – when you try to criticize these official theories. However, my following interaction with a NASA Information Officer is capable to convey this hint to the general readers as well.

Sometime back I had conversation with a NASA Information Officer.

NASA Information Officer:

Nobody stops you from throwing GR and QM out if the window. But if you do so you have to cone up with an explanation fir ALL things these twk theories explain perfectly.

(This NASA officer was occasionally writing incorrect spellings. But this is not the point.)

My response:

Obviously all things cannot be thrown out with a single published paper. Now logic becomes.
Since a single paper cannot throw out all the things so that single paper will be rejected. Therefore second paper will also not be published.
And thus … actually no criticism of basic frameworks can ever be published through this peer review system

.
NASA Information Officer:

The big bang theory made many predictions which were all observed and confirmed. If you provide a new theory it is therefore necessary to explain all these observations. You can write a paper on a static universe.
You only have to explain redshift, cmb, finite age of stars, galactic evolution, absent of black dwarfs, elemental abundances, large scale structures,… and yes, in one paper.

My response  was:

This is unfair. Standard model has not developed all these concepts through a single paper. Secondly all these things are ‘confirmed’ only through particular interpretations.
All these things can be interpreted in better way. But it is not fair to demand all the reinterpretations from a single paper. ……..

Thus apparently they do tell us that they devise expensive experimental projects to critically test these theories but actually they only intend to prove these theories correct. Apparently they do tell us that a single falsification will render these theories to dustbin but actually all the attempts to falsify straight go to dustbin without anyone actually read them. They have constructed (in their minds) sort of impassable barriers that any critique must pass. And I confidently assert here that even if it is done by anyone, they will come up with additional excuses that this or that thing is not covered etc.

And … do I intend to pass this impassable barrier?

Well, I do not intend to write a single paper or book which will falsify all the aspects of their beloved theories. Their theories do contain partial truth due to which apparently they do pass all those tests. But “Universe is Expanding” is not truth. “Dark Matter” and “Dark Energy” also do not exist. Gravity is not curvature of spacetime. Actual Newton is different from textbooks Newton such that actual Newton is more accurate. I am not going to explain all these things in a single paper or book. But I do will explain all these things here and there somewhere. I do not intend to pass any impassable barrier. Let them try to throw me in dustbin without even reading me. And let me try to survive those dustbins.
