On the possibilities of a gravitational drag of light

Zwicky, F.


I suggested in a recent paper(1) that the well known velocity distance relation for extra-galactic nebulae might possibly be accounted for by a gravitational drag of light. In this paper I discussed the momentum which a particle m moving in a straight line with the velocity v transfers to a mass M initially at rest.
