return to homepage THE FINE STRUCTURE CONSTANT Abstract:
I will show that Planck's constant is a paper wall built to hide the
mass of the photon. After that I will unwind the fine structure
constant, and answer Feynman's question as to where the number comes
from and why it is what it is.
Where R is Rydberg's constant,
Every
decade, basic physics and mechanics is plowed under by more and more
needless math.
If
we go to the Wikipedia page on Planck's constant and scroll down to
the section called “origin of Planck's constant,” we
find that Planck himself had no idea of the value of the constant.
He was working, like Newton before him, with proportions. In looking
at Wien's displacement law, Planck proposed that the energy of the
light was proportional to its frequency, and then simply made up the
equality with his constant. In other words, he had no idea where
the constant was coming from. Planck did not develop the equation
from mechanics, he developed it from experiment: specifically, the
experiments at the turn of the century on black body radiation. But what does all this mean for the fine structure constant? It means that the number for the fine structure constant comes from misusing Coulomb's constant in quantum equations. In the equations we looked at above, k should never be used, so the defining equations for the fine structure constant are just garbage. The only way to understand what the fine structure constant is, is to look at the impact parameter equation of the Rutherford formula. If you take that link you will see that the fine structure constant is just a transform or scaling constant between mass and charge. Mass and charge have been defined in two different ways, by two different sets of field equations, but they are actually equivalent. The fine structure constant just takes us from one to the other. But again, if we didn't have the constant k fouling up field equations at the quantum level, we wouldn't need the fine structure constant at all. My own unified field equations rewrite all charge as mass, jettisoning the redundant field equations of charge. Of course this allows me to jettison k and the fine structure constant as well. That is what I showed you above, by finding the correct numbers using Newton's equations like F=ma instead of electrostatic or quantum field equations. To make the unified field equations completely mechanical and transparent, we have to jettison all mention of the old charge equations, since they weren't mechanical. All classical and quantum E/M equations quickly devolve or dissolve into virtual fudges and finesses, and I have swept all of that out the door forever. All E/M field theory, quantum and macro, has to be rewritten in terms of volume, density, and real particles with real size, and that is what I have done. Conclusion:
The elementary charge is not a charge, it is a unified field force.
The standard model believes that forces at the planetary or astral
level are all gravitational and at the quantum level are all E/M,
but this is false. The forces at all levels are unified field
forces. The elementary charge includes gravity. For this reason we
can use Newton's equations at the quantum level. Newton's equation
is a unified field equation, and if we use it correctly, we can use
it at any level. The measured masses of quanta are unified field
numbers. If this paper was useful to you in any way, please consider donating a dollar (or more) to the SAVE THE ARTISTS FOUNDATION. This will allow me to continue writing these "unpublishable" things. Don't be confused by paying Melisa Smith--that is just one of my many |
