Richard Behiel: The nature of the Earth’s gravitational potential and acceleration fields

Richard Behiel: The Nature of Gravity, Part 1: Earth’s Potential and Acceleration Fields at

Richard Behiel,  I like your animations, they are a help for visualizing. You might want to consider all the mass from the sun, cosmic rays, solar wind, meteorites, dust and things that collide and interact with the earth over billions of years. Indeed on time scales of seconds and days many things hit the earth. But over billions of years they add to the mass and momentum of the earth. Also, look at the earth, zoom in to near the surface, zoom to microscopic layers in the air and ocean. Notice that there are horizontal flows and that velocity has a vertical gradient. Also, g = 9.8 (Joules/kg)/meter is the gradient of the potential. The potential can be visualized as a fine fluid. You cannot see it with human eyes, but you can paint it with tiny particles. The mass of a particle in equilibrium with air, whose classical ideal gas particle velocity is the speed of light is about (1/7 million) of the mass of an electron, about 0.025 electron volts which you can convert to mass. Having a fine grain is helpful when you want to visual complete electron and proton fields. The simple de Broglie electron does not have to be symmetric and too too simplistic. It can have substance and beauty as well.

Finally, 9.8 (Joules/kg) per meter can be divided by (1000*FaradaysConstant = 1000*AvaogadrosNumber*ElectronCharge = 96,485,332.12 Joules/kg per electronVolts/amu) to get 1.01569843E-7 electronVolts/amu per meter. Lifting a mass in 9.8 Joules/Kilogram per meter acceleration field by one meter only changes the energy of each amu (close to Codata 1.660 539 066 60E-27 kilogram or one electron proton pair) by 101.569843 nanoElectronVolts.

Right now it takes many hundreds of thousands of fragmented and separate little images like this, memorized, to keep track of things from physics. But if you can put the constants, equations, models and simulations online for all to USE, see, share, extend – the pictures and behaviors of the real world would be there, in one calculable space, in exquisite simulators of the real world, for the whole human species.

The more dense the potential field, the slower the rate of all clocks. That is gravitational potential, velocity potential, electric potential, magnetic potential, chemical potential, thermodynamic potential – if you are careful in drawing and calculating.  The Universal potential for the “big bang region” is C^2 = 8.9875518E16 Joules/kg from which the others seem to be subtracted.
