  1. I would disagree. The simplest equation on the coordinate plane is y=kx. Then k represents your constant of proportionality. Then every line that crosses the orgin can have the same rate of change or slope by taking any Y on that line and dividing by the corresponding X of that point on the line. They will all produce the same value for k except the point (0,0). Then the constant of proportionality can actually be anything at the point (0,0). At every other point on the coordinate plane the constant of proportionality can only have one single value for every line that crosses through the origin. It would lead me to the conclusion that 0/0 can actually be any/every value or rate, because every line with a constant of proportionality that is different crosses through that point.
  2. It sounds more like they are trying to discover the arrow of time. Photon polarizations? Really? I thought they had no charge. I wouldn't be surprised if they inadvertently rediscovered that lasers generate electrons. I know that is a discovery they have always denied to have ever occurred from what I have read about their work before.
  3. Whatever, sure thing boss. I will just have to ignore you now.
  4. Ya, he founded quantum mechanics, so anything that deals with his work has to be quantized. He defined things in the smallest units or quanta.
  5. I have read from different authors in theoretical physics that what Max Planck did is the definition of quantization. Then other methods were developed to quantize things to make them be able to fit in with his work mathematically. That may have been their opinion, but I bought it. I don't know why you would think quantization would be something different, other than you think everything I post should be something different.
  6. No, there were 6 people in the car instead of only 4. It just doesn't need to be quantised by other special methods, which I don't much about. Then it doesn't have to be quantized by any special means, because it is already quantized. I have been a big fan of Newton, and no one really understands how he derived his version of gravity. I am not sure he even did, but it should be valid for a proton and neutron sitting in an atom if that description on the wiki is correct. The relativistic properties of particles are mostly hidden behind the uncertainty principal of quantum mechanics, so I don't know exactly how you could apply a theory of gravity to particles traveling close to or at the speed of light. Look at what they did to find the gravitational coupling constant. instead of a radius or distance they just divided by the Planck constant and the speed of light. Then it just has the gravitational constant in front of the mass of the electrons squared, or multiplied by itself. Isn't the Planck Constant times the speed of light equal the amount of distance traveled? Would they need to square that instead? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_coupling_constant
  7. Well, a lot of particles would be traveling close to the speed of light, so you would have to use a relativistic theory of gravity.
  8. If was just equal to one when it is quantized, then it would seem like you could take any particle in quantum mechanics and just multiply it by the mass of another particle, and divide it by the radius squared to end up in the proper units to figure out how much force of gravity they would exert. Since the gravitational constant of the universe is equal to one, when it is quantized, you wouldn't even need to multiply it by a number. The G_p would just put it into the proper units. There you go, quantum gravity made easy.
  9. Are you sure you are not just mis-remembering this? It is on the wiki! It means to describe something in the smallest possible units. https://www.google.com/search?q=quantized&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS778US778&oq=quantized&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l5.2367j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 1. PHYSICS apply quantum theory to, especially form into quanta, in particular restrict the number of possible values of (a quantity) or states of (a system) so that certain variables can assume only certain discrete magnitudes. I would say that the gravitational constant of the universe being put into Planck Units would surely qualify for that one.
  10. I wasn't aware that he quantized the gravitational constant of the universe, so that is why I asked. It seemed like that could have been referring to just h bar itself. I know he had worked with other physicist to try to quantize everything to create the foundation of particle physics.
  11. Do you know if it was Max Planck that created this expression, or was it done by someone else?
  12. The Gravitational Constant of the Universe
  13. I was assuming that it was already quantized, because it was being described in Planck Units. Then if everything else was quantized; you would use the quantized gravitational constant. Correct?
  14. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galileo_Galilei He was sentenced to formal imprisonment at the pleasure of the Inquisition.[90] On the following day, this was commuted to house arrest, which he remained under for the rest of his life.[91] Why is that exactly? So is the quantized gravitational constant not ever used in quantum mechanics? If it is, how or where?
