Back about 1987 or before
I was studying gravitation and quantum mechanics
and I came across this:
(* Classical electromagnetic radius*)
r = e^2/(m*c^2)
(* Riemannian Curvature*)
R = -2/r^2
(* 3 space volume*)
V = (4*Pi/3)*r^3
(*scalar energy densidty*)
T = m*c^2/V
(* solution for R = -8Pi*G*T(v, v) : scalar reduction of Einstein's
Solve[R + (8*Pi*G/c^4)*T == 0, m]
e = 4.80325*10^(-10)
G = 6.6732*10^(-8)
(* mass in grams*)
m = e/Sqrt[3*G]
At the time I hadn't run into Planck's mass.
If you put in
in this calculation you get a version of the Planck mass.
I was wondering if this was a well known calculation like Planck's mass?
