Luminiferous Ether - Maxwell

Boltzman, Gibson, Barclay, Hopkinson and Gladstone's Experiments. Square Root of the Dielectric Capacity Equal to the Refractive Index. Phil. Trans. 1871, p. 573. Maxwell, Vol. II, § 788. Maxwell has argued elaborately upon results of some of the above experimenters upon the theory that the luminiferous ether is the medium for transmission of electricity, light and magnetism; therefore he predicted that the relation stated in the title above should exist. He acknowledged that the relation is sufficiently near a constant to show in connection with other results, especially those obtained, that his theory is probably correct.
