"Newton Versus Relativity" is an interesting addition to physics litterature. Author JM Rocard begins with one basic connexion between the laws of relativistic and classical mechanics: unity in the behavior of gravitational electromagnetic and inertial forces and unity between Newton's laws and the conservation laws for an isolated system. He then proceeds to examine a few litigious questions: the rocket problem (within the systems with variable mass) and the inertial forces ((real for some, fictitious for others).
His conclusion? Even though Einstein was right, that does not mean Newton was wrong. Imaginative yet firmly based in science, "Newton Versus Relativity" is an unusual work that will be of interest to many

Sir, I am sorry to disagree but it was Newton who is right all the times and not Einstein. In my book, Creation by Laws, I presented the famous equation: E = mc˛, which I believe was probably derived from Isaac Newton F= m x a and Giovanni Coriolis’ W = F x d. Einstein just borrowed their great works, manipulated them and declared to be his. If you analyze both scientists’ equations by dimension and units of measurements, we have.
FORMULA >>STATEMENT
W = F x D >>Eq1 – Coriolis equation
F = (M x A) >>Eq2 – Newton’s equation
W = (M x A) x D >>replace F from eq1 with eq2
W = (kg x m/s˛) x m >>substitute dimensions w/units
W = (kg x m x m) / s˛ >>apply laws of exponents
W = ( kg x m˛ ) / s˛ >>( X)^A x (X)^B = (X)^A+B
W = kg x (m˛/s˛) >>combining
W = kg x (m/s)˛ >>simplifying
W = M x V˛. >>subsitute Kg for M, m/s for V
W = m x c˛. >>c = velocity of light, m=mass
E = m x c˛ >>since Work(W) = Energy(E)
Is it correct if I say that work = mass times acceleration times distance (W=MAD)?

Sounds very interesting. I look forward to purchasing a copy of your book.
