If I take a large mass such as the sun and change its negative electric charges (half the total number of charges) into positive charges, so all electric charges are positive, and I transform the electric force so that like charges attract, the charges would be behaving like masses.If I take the mass of the star and convert half of it to negative mass, since like masses attract , we would expect unlike masses to repel one another.By transforming the gravitational force so that unlike masses attract one another, mass(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

would now be behaving like charge.

If mass and charge have swapped places in the Sun, under the above transformation, then mass can generate an electromagnetic wave.

How fast is this wave?

Using the equation for the radius excess of the Sun and assuming it must be the same from the point of view of charges as it is from the point of view of masses:

GM/3 c^2 = k Q/ 3 v^2 ( Q =total charge after half charge in the Sun has its sign reversed,so all charge has one sign)

10^ -11 x 10^30 / (10^8) ^ 2 = 10^9 x 10^ 38 / v^2

v = 10 ^ 22 metres per second.
