Recently, I repeated the famous Trouton-Noble experiment with more-than-adequate sensitivity to detect the torque due to the rotational velocity at the surface of the earth, even with account taken of the dielectric constant of the capacitor, should such a torque exist. The result was null. The present paper shows why there never was any cogent reason to expect a torque, even in classical theory.
