Hi. With regard to the Fine Structure Constant, I have been trying to figure out the practical applications of the formula in nature but have had difficulty trying to discern what the 137 denominator in the equation represents. ie, it is 1 137th of what? Or, 137 whats? Is there a practical process in nature in which the relationship between the 1 and the 137 is patently manifest and describes the equation in a manner which is more accessible for a layman?
