...is intuitionally the speed of light or tempic field intensity. C>C. is the fine structure constant; **the ratio of the velocity of light to the velocity of the** electron in the first orbit of the Bohr hydrogen atom. Circular to linear ratio implies orthogonality.... | |

...meeting the circle in P. Thus OP is the distance that light travels in a second. The ratio of OP to OM is **the ratio of the velocity of light to the velocity of the** body. The ratio of OP to MP is the ratio in which apparent lengths are altered by the motion. That... | |

...very small one) of the velocity of light. This effect, now known as the 'aberration of light', allowed **the ratio of the velocity of light to the velocity of the earth in its orbit** to be determined and, knowing the size of the earth's orbit around the sun, it enabled the velocity... | |

...as would be expected from parallax. He deduced that the movement (aberration) he saw was related to **the ratio of the velocity of light to the velocity of the Earth** about the Sun. This discovery allowed him to estimate the speed of light to be 3,08,300 km/sec. (Compared... | |

...that the star appears to move periodically in space as the year revolves. From this apparent movement, **the ratio of the velocity of light to the velocity of the earth in its orbit** may obviously be calculated. The first determination of the velocity of light over short distances... | |
