Relativitaetstheorie: 1911-1914: Entwurftheorie

Eötvös Balance
Replica, 1930

Heavy mass causes gravity; inert mass resists acceleration. The equivalence of both masses is the starting point for the General Theory of Relativity. This equivalence can be verified with the torsion balances developed by Lorand Eötvös around 1900.
