P3_7 Cavorite Pt 3: Varying the Size of the Sheet

C. J. Middleton, H. W. Buttery, C. D.Y. Moore, R. H. Peck


A continuation of The Cavorite Series, in which we explore the effects of a fictional substance which is “opaque to gravitation”. In this paper we examine the effects of varying the radius of the Cavorite sheet. As expected, the point at which the g experienced by a test particle returns to close to normal Earth g increases with the radius of the Cavorite. However, we found that even a Cavorite sheet of 1 km radius would not be enough to vent the atmosphere.
