### Measuring Surface Potential

Posted: Thu Sep 04, 2014 4:24 pm
Here is thought I have about a simple experiment which could be carried out using a high impedance voltmeter.

GP theory says, all bodies have a surface potential which is equal to their total energy in eV divided by the total number of nucleons in the body. A body at rest at sea level on earth will take on ground potential which for all practical purposes can be concidered to be 930,000,000 volts, thefore a body moving at 30 m/s relative to an observer at rest, aught to have a surface potential of around 930,000,100 volts, a difference in potential of 100 volts.

The theory predicts as follows;

So for a velocity of 30 m/s which is around 100 km/h there should be a change in surface potential of about 100 Volts.

Now I am not quite sure how one would carry out such an experiment, but it seems possible. Would it need to be done in vacuum?

Is anyone aware if such an effect is predicted by classical physics theory?
