## SUROJ 3 years ago I was thinking about gravity. Can anyone help me find what is mistake in my new idea?

Noone here to help me?

2. theEric

I'm no expert, but I could try to lend a hand briefly!

3. theEric

Good luck!

I am thinking attractive force in nature is caused by only one way......... I mean in electromagnetism attractive force is caused by charges and in newtons gravity theory attractive force is caused by masses....... even-though the magnitude is different the qualitative property of attraction is same in both.....so, I am just wandering if there is same thing behind of attraction whether it's electron-proton or earth-sun

5. SUROJ

Am I just wasting my time or that makes some sense?

6. theEric

Thinking is not wasting time!

7. abhishekjais

i guess google can answer that for you according to what i read just now ,try searching

8. theEric

It is common to like electromagnetism and gravitation! Have you seen their equations?

9. SUROJ

you mean inverse square laws?

In fact, static electric force has the same property. I believe, though I'm tired and my memory isn't great, that the equations all look like$F=C_{constant}\frac{p_{1, someProperty}-p_{2, someProperty}}{d_{distanceApart}^2}$

12. abhishekjais

why does mass attract other mass <------- this is the question you should search ; there are more that one topics which might be worth reading for you

13. theEric

Albert Einstein, among many other physicists, have been contemplating the possiblility of a "unified filed theory" to explain this pattern.

14. theEric

Internet is a great source!

15. theEric

You can also search for information about the other field forces, unless this will hurt your focus on gravity.

16. theEric

The properties in the numerators of the equations are like: electric: charge gravitational: mass

17. abhishekjais

you may like to read how Einstein interpretted gravity in terms of space fabric if you are curious

18. theEric

And I'm not sure if/how magnetism fits in. I know that current theory places electrons as the source of magnetism, direction is decided by they're "spin". And if two charges interact through magnetism, they are moving relative to each other.

19. theEric

Oh, there are some good youtube videos that try to explain Einstein's theories! Good luck!

20. theEric

Also note that Einstein did not discover any unified field theory, and some physicists disagree with Einstein's approach. I wish I could remember the one physicist's name... Sorry I can't!

21. theEric

I read that Einstein based some of his theories of of someone else's work, and then sort of took a tangent, but that was the opinion of this physicist I can't remember.

@rainbowink I don't know if someone already tought about that........it's new for me
