Gravity Made SimpleNed Phipps Copyright © 2007 Statement of the
Theory: First, define the
following metric: _{} Define, also, a
scalar gravitational energy potential _{} and set _{} Define _{} as the timedelayed
Newtonian potential with a modified “effective” radius. Timedelayed means
the radial distance is calculated according to the speed of gravity. This speed is either the speed of light
(as defined here) or 1. There is
currently no “speedofgravity” measurement to decide this experimentally. where _{} is the “effective”
radial distance to each mass. Let Properties: 1) Lowgravity: Compares well with the isotropic
form of the Schwarzschild metric. When expanded as a Taylor’s series in _{}, _{},_{},_{},_{} all match. This
means that the theory passes all the solar system tests including the recent
measurement of the PPN parameter _{}. 2) Mediumgravity: a.
This theory
predicts the next PPN parameter _{} to be twice that of
GR. 3) Highgravity: a.
The event
horizon of a black hole is reduced to a single point at the center. b.
The collapse
approaches, but never reaches the singularity. c.
The metric
effect outpaces the actual collapse at around 1.272*m/r. d.
The appearance from
within the collapse is comparable to the external universe. It appears to be expanding. 4) General: One coordinate system covers the
entire universe. Interpretation: The intuitive
interpretation of this theory is that all particles are refracted by a
gravitational aether. The mathematics
of geodesic paths and refraction paths are equivalent. The difference is only that the underlying
space is not considered curved when interpreting paths as refraction. The “effective”
distance is a kind of equilibrium condition where gravity happens in the
context of gravity. The same combined
_{} applies to all
masses and the final _{} value is not known
to each mass. The calculation for the
gravity from a single mass is relatively simple. For multiple masses, one iterates from a guess. The iterative concept is a strong clue for
the process that would be required to accomplish the effect. Single Central
Mass: For the case that
matches the Schwarzschild context, equations and can be solved for the energy potential and,
hence, the metric. The energy
potential is the following: _{} or _{} This highlights the wellbehaved nature of the potential at _{} and _{}. References: 1)
