Stupid Mickey Moron ran away.gamma = 1/cosine(A) - 1where cosine(A) is the cosine of the anglewhose sine is velocity(A)/C.The velocity/C sine function is called betaand also the fine structure constant.Considering that the velocityof electro-magnetic propagation in a mediumis a function of the product of thepermeability and permittivity of the medium,[ velocity[em]^-2 = permeability * permittivity]gamma can also be more correctly expressed as:gamma = 1/sqrt(1-velocity^2 * permeability * permittivity)as it is more rational to express valuesin units that can be quantized with referenceto a precise known standard,rather than with reference to a man made constant like "c".For a graphic view of howpermeability * permittivity fit into the scheme of things,[ Electric, magnetic and gravitational.]download the tiny PDF filefrom the URL below.http://184.105.237.216/%7Etompotte/unifying%20the%20forces.pdfThe paper also explains how the way a property is measured[ Average, RMS, peak, peak to peak, quasi-peak, etc.]fits into the scheme of things,and how the use of angular or linear displacement standardsaffects the numerical values expressed.[ 1(radius), 2(diameter) or 2pi(angular) ].-- Tom Potterhttp://warp-to.us/http://tiny.im/390khttp://tom-potters-world.tk/
