fresnel drag coefficient, phaseshift, aether, SRT
The experiment of Hippolyte Fizeau on the velocity of light in moving water is revisited. It turns out that the partial drag coefficient, assumed by Jean Fresnel (in this experiment), cannot account for the observed data, or is applied in a wrong way. The calculated (double, or total shift) data were simply doubled by Fizeau. Consequently the theoretically derived partial drag coefficient was confirmed in a tricky way. Maybe this was only a mistake, but it has far reaching consequences. Normal euklidean addition of velocities is denied and consequently no more possible.
Instead of this the addition of velocities according to the theory of relativity is apparently confirmed, so finally c+c=c. This is naturally absurd.
