I Unifying gravity

  1. Aug 7, 2016 #1
    How do physicists know that at 10-35m gravitation becomes unified with the other three interactions. How they came to their conclusion?

    Please note it's not a homework question. :smile:

    Nobody knows this. It's a possibility to be considered.

    As far as I understand things, String Theory has an approach that involves very small scale 'extra dimensions' and that seems to achieve unification. But there's no experimental evidence for this so it's a more a matter of what takes your fancy. The human mind loves to see loose ends tied up and String Theory does just that.

    Ok. But I think they should have a reason for that choice of 10 -35m. Why would it be a random value? Does not make sense.
