A Paradoxical Deviation from Lavoisier’s Postulate Using the Classic Newtonian Gravity

Valeriu Dragan


The conservation of mass and energy concept is unanimously considered to be a law of nature since its postulation in the 18th century by French chemist Antoine Lavoisier. However, the postulate did not take into consideration the 20th century Theory of Relativity. Based on the observation that the gravitational acceleration is independent of the motion mass of the falling object, we derive a paradoxical thought experiment that deviates from Lavoisier’s postulate. We use the mathematical models of the Special Theory of Relativity and Newtonian gravitation to demonstrate that the model permits generation of mass and energy in a manner that is fundamentally different than the one used by Barber’s 1982 Self Creation Cosmology. A sample calculation is also provided before the concluding remarks.
