View Full Version : Mathematic derivation of the speed of light?

I was wandering if there is a formula from which c can be calculated. Or is it like the hubble constant, accepted as an intrinsic property of spacetime, but continually improved by measurements of a higher accuracy than previously.

Maxwell's derivation of the laws of electromagnetism did just that!

I find it easy once you get it to 'click'. The topic is not that easy to follow though...
