Testing quantised inertia on the emdrive
http://arxiv.org/abs/1604.03449v1



It has been shown that truncated cone-shaped cavities with microwaves
resonating within them move slightly towards their narrow ends (the
emdrive). Standard physics has no explanation for this and an error
has not yet been found. It is shown here that this effect can be
predicted by assuming that the inertial mass of the photons in the
cavity is caused by Unruh radiation, whose wavelengths must fit
exactly within the cavity, using a theory already applied
successfully to astrophysical anomalies such as galaxy rotation where
the Unruh waves have to fit within the Hubble scale. In the emdrive
this means that more Unruh waves are allowed at the wide end, leading
to a greater inertial mass for the photons there, and to conserve
momentum the cavity must move towards its narrow end, as observed.
The model predicts thrusts of: 3.8, 149, 7.3, 0.23, 0.57, 0.11, 0.64
and 0.02 mN compared with the observed thrusts of: 16, 147, 9, 0.09,
0.05, 0.06, 0.03, and 0.02 mN and predicts that if the axial length
is equal to the diameter of the small end of the cavity, the thrust
should be reversed.
