Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

According to quantum mechanics, the graviton is the measure of the smallest amount of curvature possible in space-time. I read that the mass which would be required to create this curvature is Planck Mass which is close to the value 10^-5g.

But the elementary particles, like electrons, are much lighter than planck mass, wouldn't they create gravitational fields less than the graviton level?

In other words, since the basic curvature is produced by mass close to 10^-5g, how do we account for the gravitational field of elementary particles like electrons which should produce gravitatonal field less than the graviton level?
