Dear Professor David Tong,

David Tong. Professor of Theoretical Physics Fellow of Trinity College . (My and Newton's college.) 

We need comment by you on the results of W1 thru W4. Can they be explained within the confines of classical electromagnetism, within the assertion that a charged capacitor has a stationary electric field?

I used the Tektronix 109 pulse generator shortly after 1963. The manual says that when a cable was connected to a 1m coax cable charged to 8v, a 2m 4v pulse was emitted. No explanation was ever given. http://ivorcatt.co.uk/x212.pdf

Some decades later I surmised that the 1m cable charged to 8v contained 4v continuously travelling to the right, and 4v travelling to the left.

A few decades more later, Tony Wakefield, now in Australia, got in touch with me, and following my instructions, for the first time looked inside the 1m charged cable while it was discharging. The experimental results indicated that before being discharged, energy was continuously reciprocating from right to left and back. (As Professor Yekovlev said some decades later, in his Royal Soc. article;

http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/yak.htm ;  that there is no such a thing as a static electric field in a capacitor. http://async.org.uk/IvorCatt-edited.html

The first Wakefield Experiment was published without peer review in 2013. http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/x343.pdf . There was no comment on these results.   http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/x344.htm

Five years later, the results of what we now call "Wakefield 1" or W1 were published in the Royal Society by guest editor Professor Yakovlev FIEEE.  http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/yak.htm . (Full article here; https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/10.1098/rsta.2017.0449 )

 

There are now four Wakefield experimental results, W1 thru W4.

 

Wakefield explained.

W1 Connect a long 50 ohm coaxial cable to a 1 metre cable charged to +8. Out comes a 2m 4v pulse.

W2 Connect long cables to both ends. Out of each end comes a 1m 4v pulse.

W3 Connect a short circuit to one end of a 1m cable charged to 8v. The cable alternates between +8v, 0v and -8v.

W4 Connect a short to both ends of a 1m cable charged to 8v. The midpoint alternates between +8v and -8v.

All these results indicate that a long “steady” charged capacitor is not steady at all. It contains ExH energy continually travelling from left to right and back again at the speed of light. No second accredited expert worldwide will comment on the results. Those approached total about 30. Professor Alex Yakovlev of Newcastle University published the result of W1 in the Royal Society, http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/yak.htm Transactions A, “....  that there is no such a thing as a static electric field in a capacitor.”  https://royalsocietypublishing.org/toc/rsta/376/2134 , and correctly predicted the results of W3 before it was conducted.

Dear Professor,

The Heaviside-Maxwell equations seem innocent enough. We have the mathematics "formalising", or making more rigorous, the physics.

But science is thought to proceed via conjecture, experiment, and confirmation or rejection of the conjecture. Then Maxwell appeared to build a rigorous bedrock on which could rest the physics or the real world. This maths was built on the symbols below, D, B, E, H.

But supposing an experiment (Wakefield) led to the conclusion that one of those terms, E, did not exist?

The only available explanation we have of the four Wakefield experimental results is, to quote the Royal Society,   http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/yak.htm , that there is no such a thing as a static electric field in a capacitorAccording to Wakefield, there only exists ExH travelling a speed c, for which perhaps we do not have a symbol. So all the mathematical paraphernalia built on D, B, E, H is flawed, not related to physical reality. Or do you have an explanation of the Wakefield results which is compatible with classical electromagnetism's stationary field, based on E etc.?

 

I shall add your comments at the end of http://www.ivorcatt.co.uk/tong2.htm
