Physics, Astronomy & Cosmology / Re: what would happen if gravitational mass were different than inertial mass?« on: 10/05/2021 17:56:42 »
Are you suggesting that we should care if the calculation is actually right?As an aviator and an engineer, I always care if the calcs are correct. As do my customers and investors.
Anyway, I looked up Eotvos' experiment on Wikipedia and right at the end of the introduction it says
It is sufficient for the inertial mass to be proportional to the gravitational mass. Any multiplicative constant will be absorbed in the definition of the unit of forcewhich is exactly what this stupid engineer said earlier.
