Velocity dependent inertial induction: An extension of Mach’s principle

  • Amitabha Ghosh


In this article a model of inertial induction has been presented. According to this model the magnitude of the acceleration dependent inertia force comes out exactly as the product of the acceleration and inertial mass. The model also indicates that even uniform velocity gives rise to inertia force. However, the magnitude of the velocity dependent inertia force is exceedingly small but it causes a cosmological red shift whose order of magnitude is same as that of the observed values.
