# Gordon Metric Revisited

We show that Gordon metric belongs to a larger class of geometries, which are responsible to describe the paths of accelerated bodies in moving dielectrics as geodesics in a metric $\hat q {\mu u}$ different from the background one. This map depends only on the background metric and on the motion of the bodies under consideration. As a consequence, this method describes a more general property that concerns the elimination of any kind of force acting on bodies by a suitable change of the substratum metric.
