4 Own experiments
4.1 Interaction between moving static magnetic fields and the gravity field of the EarthThe aim of this experiment was to determine whether there is an interaction between a moving DC current and the gravity field of the Earth. The theoretical considerations can be found in section 3.2. The experiment shows that there is no interaction between the Earth's gravitational field and a moving direct current within the framework of measurement accuracy. Furthermore, the experiment provides no evidence that the magnetic force between moving static magnetic fields would depend on the relative velocity. However, this is in line with expectations within the framework of quantino theory.
4.1.1 Experimental setup

- Figure 22.214.171.124: Load cell array
- Figure 126.96.36.199: Bridge circuit with ADC
- Figure 188.8.131.52: Acrylic disc with copper coil, integrated voltage source, H-bridge circuit for automatic current direction change and current direction indication (blue/red)
As shown in Figure 184.108.40.206, there are battery compartments in the disc. These are used to take up two lithium-ion accumulators with a open-circuit voltage of 4.1 volts. Since both battery trays are connected in series, the voltage across the coil is 8.2 V when the accumulators are fully charged. This results in a calculated current of 0.37 A, which is practically a little lower, since the voltage drops slightly due to the low coil resistance. A measurement gave a current of 350 mA at 7.75 V voltage under load.

The task of the glued-on circuit board is to change the current direction automatically and without the aid of mechanical components every few seconds. The schematic is shown in Figure 18.104.22.168 (the KiCad files can be found here).

4.1.2 Calibration and determination of accuracy
- Figure 126.96.36.199: Calibration with test weights
- Figure 188.8.131.52: Result after calibration with the test weights
The reproducibility was afterwards checked by putting on the test weights again. This yielded the measurement curve shown in Figure 184.108.40.206. It turned out that the measurement setup drifts relatively easy but comparatively slow. The absolute mean values when applying the test weights are listed in the following table. The same applies to the standard deviations.
|test weight||masured mean value||measured standard deviation|
|0 g||-0.880 g||16.7 mg|
|10 g||9.446 g||15.4 mg|
|30 g||28.304 g||10.5 mg|
|80 g||79.583 g||20.7 mg|
The standard deviations show that the measurement setup can detect weight variations of about 20mg or forces of about 200μN.
4.1.3 Measurement results

4.1.4 InterpretationIn order to interpret the measured data, the range after the engine has started up to full speed and the switching-off of the engine has been extracted (from 400s to 715s in figure 22.214.171.124). For drift compensation, a linear regression was then performed for each of the two signals and the function determined in this way was then subtracted from the signal. Figure 126.96.36.199 shows the amplitude spectrums of the drift compensated signals.

However, according to the model of mass in quantino theory, such an effect should exist. By inserting I=0.35A, f = 4000/60Hz, d=0.09m into equation (3.2.20), a virtual mass of 0.34mg per wire loop results. Because there are 440 wire loops in total, if the mass hypothesis is correct, a total virtual mass of ±149.6mg should be measurable. This can be excluded by means of the measurement data. Moving electrical charges thus interact either not at all with the gravitational field or the effect is at least 20 times smaller. The hypothesis must therefore be rejected in its present form.
