Abstract

The article attempts to show that the results of the Michelson are not in contradiction with classical mechanics, but rather confirm it. Using the law of conservation of momentum in the consideration of the Michelson interferometer allows us to conclude that the path difference separated beams is independent of speed and direction of the light medium.
