Abstract

The article is attempts to show that the results of A.A. Michelson experiments not conflict with classical mechanics, but rather confirm it. Using the laws of conservation of momentum and energy in the consideration of the Michelson interferometer allows us to conclude that the path difference of separated beams is independent of speed and direction of movement of the luminiferous medium.
