Other ways, maybe starting with the most cumbersome, would be an apparatus showing any change of 'critical point' (where an element can change from gas to liquid to solid) under equal pressure and temperature, or you could use a more portable experiment showing any change in the photo-electric effect, or an even 'lighter' set-up displaying variation of light intensity (on a screen) from a calibrated light source (that might seem more esoteric but I believe the same principle applies). The big problem with all of them, including Bill's, is that they involve several elements plus another one: that of calibration and measurement. No. it's not just a matter of accuracy, it's the fact that the various elements can be affected in perhaps opposing ways and, more serious, that the calibrating and measuring devices _will_ be affected too - probably cancelling-out any 'real' effect. A bit like Relativity effects neatly cancel out any possible 'ether' measurements by the Michelson/Morley Experiment [which however is still written-up as if it 'proved' something.] Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
