Synchrotron and Cherenkov radiation is distinguished by a sharp directivity along the velocity V of the emitting particles. It was believed that this orientation is explained only by the special theory of relativity (SRT) and contradicts the ballistic theory of Ritz (BTR) . But in fact, the properties of radiation following from the Ritz theory and the classical estimate of V correspond to experiments [2–4]. This also applies to measurements of the speed of synchrotron radiation in the experiment of E. Aleksandrov and at the SLAC facility, where the speed of radiation c' and electrons V was not measured directly [4, 5]. According to Ritz's theory, the speed of electrons V is added to the speed of light c relative to them, and the calculated speed c' = c + V depends on the method of measuring V. In the classical estimation of V, the experimental results correspond to the Ritz theory.
