  • The paper proposes an alternative to the Foucault pendulum for detecting various movements of rotation of the Earth. Calculations suggest that if the duration of a "free" fall becomes longer the eastward deflection will be amplified in proportion with the increased duration. Instead of 20 micrometers for a one-meter fall, one can expect deflections more than 1,000 times larger when the fall lasts a few minutes. The method proposed in this paper consists in using the buoyancy of a (non viscous… CONTINUE READING
