Experiments on testing Ritz's ballistic theory are investigated. The ambiguity of their results is shown and methods of its resolution are proposed. The effect of transformation of the light frequency predicted by Ritz is considered, and its consequences are compared with the data of astronomical observations and laboratory experiments. A setup scheme for testing the Ritz effect and smooth conversion of the wavelength and duration of laser pulses is proposed.
