An Alternative to Mach's Principle.

Authors: John Hunter
Comments: 2 pages

Mach argued that since the acceleration of a body can only be measured relative to other bodies, then the inertia of masses is somehow due to the presence of distant matter in the universe. Here an alternative is put forward...that the acceleration (of one part of a body) can be measured relative to other parts. Inertia is thus considered to be due to the force needed to compress (or stretch) a body undergoing acceleration.
