Connection of Newtonian Constant of Gravitation G and Plank Constant h

In summary, the conversation discusses research on finding a connection between electrodynamics and gravitation, specifically between the Newtonian constant of gravitation G and electromagnetic constants. The researchers have discovered a global tie between G and major fundamental physical constants and have derived a mathematical equation for calculating G. They also found that G includes Planck constant h. By using a group of primary constants, they were able to accurately calculate all fundamental physical constants, opening new possibilities for research on microgravity and indicating a single nature of electromagnetism and gravitation. The conversation also touches on the definition of the Planck length and its connection to these fundamental constants. However, there are some doubts about the validity of the research and its conclusions.

I ran across this paper some time ago. I would be interested in any comments that you may have.

The aim of our research is to define a tie of electrodynamics and gravitation and to define a tie of Newtonian constant of gravitation G and electromagnetic constants. Has been discovered a global tie between Newtonian constant of gravitation G and major fundamental physical constants and has been got mathematical equation for calculation of constant G. Has been found out that Newtonian constant of gravitation G includes in oneself Planck constant h. A tie between constants which has been opened by us allows to get all the fundamental physical constants by mathematical calculation on base of special group of constants. As an initial constants for getting Newtonian constant of gravitation G we used only 4 fundamental physical constants: speed of light in vacuum, Planck constant, Rydberg constant, fine-structure constant. We discovered a group of independent primary constants, which allowed to get not only the constant G, but also the other fundamental physical constants with exactness 9 v10 digits by mathematical calculation. Results, which have been got, open the new possibilities in research of problems of microgravity, indicate on single nature of electromagnetism and gravitation and on possibility of management by gravitation with help of electromagnetic technologies.

i only know of one connection (it doesn't mean this is the only one which exists) and it's:
planck length which is sqrt(G*h/2pi*c).

That's not a connection, that's the defintion of the Planck length (it should be c3), the Planck length is derived from these fundamental constants.

well then my book (companion to the cosmos) is wrong.

The Planck length isn't a fundamnetal constant, it's a unit derived from fundamental constants and if your book listed c instead of the third power of c then it is wrong. When Max Planck invented Planck units it was to eliminate arbitariness from the units of measurement (though he used h, Planck's constant instead of h-bar, Dirac's constant that are used for Planck units today).

wikipedia looks perfectly corect to me. I know Wikipedia is open source, but in general it's a very good source of information.

Bonjour,

IMHO and from my personal experience, someone may jungle with already usefull and known constants to aim toward more fundamental constants, the result shall demonstrate that the new constants 1) have fundamental physical meaning(s) and 2) is able to predict colateral phenomena(s).

Posing that you and a friend are extra-terrestrial beings. You are specialized in the earth-european continent and your friend is specialized in earth-american continent. When someone (another extra-terestrial being or not) come and said: "European and american weathers are linked." That's fine. When he come and said: "Polar ice cap area influences the golfstream path which link european and american weathers" That's better.

No nay-sayers to this paper?

I was not sure what to think.

No the paper's obviously bunk.

Why?
 

1. What is the relationship between Newtonian Constant of Gravitation G and Plank Constant h?

The relationship between G and h is that they are both fundamental physical constants that play a crucial role in our understanding of the universe. G is the constant that relates the force of gravity between two objects to their masses and distance, while h is the constant that relates the energy of a photon to its frequency.

2. Why is the connection between G and h important?

The connection between G and h is important because it helps us understand the fundamental laws of physics. These constants are used in various equations and theories, such as Newton's law of universal gravitation and the uncertainty principle in quantum mechanics.

3. How are G and h measured?

G and h are measured using different experimental techniques. G is typically measured using a torsion balance, while h is measured using various methods such as the photoelectric effect or blackbody radiation. These experiments require precise and sophisticated equipment to obtain accurate values.

4. Are G and h truly constant?

While G and h are considered to be fundamental constants, there have been some discrepancies in their measured values over time. This has led scientists to question if these constants are truly constant or if they vary under certain conditions. However, the current consensus is that G and h are indeed constant, with any discrepancies being attributed to experimental errors.

5. How does the connection between G and h relate to the theory of general relativity?

The connection between G and h is crucial in the theory of general relativity, which explains the force of gravity as the curvature of spacetime caused by the presence of mass and energy. G is used in the Einstein field equations to quantify this curvature, while h is used in the equations for the energy-momentum tensor. This connection helps bridge the gap between classical mechanics and modern theories of gravity.
