On the treatment of the Michelson-Morley experiment; O traktovke opyta Majkel`sona-Morli

Technical Report:

Abstract

It is noted that the introduction of Lorentz-Fitzgerald contraction for the explanation of a negative result of the Michelson-Morley experiment is associated with the inaccuracy of calculating the time of light propagation along a transverse arm of the interferometer. Systematic consideration of the influence of the earth`s motion on the velocity of light propagation leads to the original Michelson result. It should be stressed that `elongation formula` for a longitudinal arm is a consequence of the interpretation of this experiment from the viewpoint of the relativity theory. 7 refs.
