Fizeau experiment, Fresnel drag coefficient.
I approach the Fizeau experiment and its result with the purpose to know what it unveils to us when the experiment is performed in a fixed frame and Earth’s inertial frame. I complete the derivations of the fringe shift of the Fizeau experiment when the experiment is performed in a fixed frame and Earth’s inertial frame. The conclusion is that the observation of the experiment in an inertial frame is like the experiment carried out in a fixed frame.
