Their are three proven dimensions ( + time ) and we can only see two right? Google insists their could be more or even less. What was the latest research/expirements on multiple dimensions in the quantum world. What were the results?

-(a question coming from someone understanding a 1/4 of conceptual physics)

Thanks
There are no proven results on the extra spatial dimensions. We know that there are 3 spatial dimensions and one time dimension in so called spacetime. It is postulated by M-Theory (an offshoot of String Theory) that there may be and additional 7 spatial dimensions curled up small at Planck Length scales. That's pretty darm small and unobservable by any instrument and experimentally out of sight, such that the hidden dimensions, if they exist, may forever remain hidden. A Theory of Quantum Gravity may shed some light on this, perhaps. Just maybe.

A relation is does not mean they are the same thing.

This form of the potential is expected to be valid for ##r \ll \lambda## and, in general, there will be more terms correcting the 1/r potential, which are nevertheless subdominant
