## Background

Gravity has long been attempted to be explained, but for years, it has been difficult to describe the mechanism that makes it work. We all know what gravity does – drop a bowling ball on your foot and you surely know the answer. But what made it drop in the first place?

In 1687, Isaac Newton stated the gravitational force to be proportional to the product of two masses, and this is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Newton developed the equation to model gravity but had no explanation for the cause of gravity. In 1915, Albert Einstein refined gravity with General Relativity and described gravity as the warping of spacetime. Many years after Einstein, the Standard Model of particle physics evolved and a theorized graviton particle is what interacts between two bodies (made of particles) to determine the force of attraction. The equations work, but the explanations provided may be wrong.

**Explanation**

Gravity is a result of traveling, longitudinal waves that are absorbed by particles. Particles consist of standing waves of energy, made of in-waves that convert to out-waves. However, the out-wave amplitude is slightly less than in-wave amplitude after energy is absorbed and transferred to transverse wave energy for the spin of a particle (consistent with conservation of energy laws in physics). In the magnetism section, the spin was found to derive the Bohr magneton, thereby associating the increased spin energy to the decreased longitudinal energy associated with gravity.

**A single particle with a very slight loss of longitudinal out-wave energy**

The amplitude loss is very weak compared to constructive and destructive wave interference that is the cause of the electric force. The electric force dominates wave center movement until the summation of amplitude loss in a collection of particles, e.g. large bodies like planets, is greater than the effect of the electric force. Most large bodies consist of atoms that are neutral (protons and electrons), such that there is negligible constructive or destructive wave interference on bodies consisting of atoms. In this case, gravity is the force that controls large bodies due to the reduction of amplitude. The larger the number of particles in a body, the greater its amplitude loss. Amplitude is also reduced by the square of the distance naturally, so distance also affects the force of attraction.

**A large body with a significant loss of longitudinal out-wave energy
**

The loss of longitudinal out-wave energy in two large bodies produces a shading effect. The collective amplitude of all the particles in a body have been reduced as it passes through a body and is shaded between the two bodies. In the illustration below, longitudinal wave energy on Body A is partially absorbed, leading to less wave amplitude on Body B from its left side. Likewise, longitudinal wave energy on Body B is partially absorbed, leading to less wave amplitude on Body A from its right side. This is a shading effect. And when the net force is greater on one side of an object, it will move in the direction of the force (amplitude is higher on one side and it seeks the direction of minimal amplitude). Like all of the forces, particles are moving to minimize their amplitude. Thus, Body A and Body B will be attracted to each other. Gravitation is not a “pull” force. It’s actually a “push” force, but it’s the result of shading and unequal pressure.

This is gravity. Traveling, longitudinal waves that convert some of their energy (amplitude) to magnetic spin as it passes through a body. Two bodies produce a shading effect and particles then move to minimize their amplitude.

**Equation**

In simple terms using two groups (Q) of particles separated at distance (r), and the properties of the electron’s energy, mass and radius (E_{e}, m_{e }and r_{e}), the force of gravity for a proton is shown below. It is simply the electric force with an amplitude adjustment (⍺_{Gp}) for the loss of energy in the proton’s out-wave.

When expressed in wave constant terms, it is gravitational force:

**Gravitational Force**

The derivation of the gravitational force requires multiple steps to arrive at the gravitational loss of the proton, instead of the electron. For the detailed steps, refer to the *Forces* paper.

**Large Body Particle Count**

To use the gravitational force equation, the number of particles must be estimated for large bodies such that the total amplitude loss for the body can be obtained. The variable Q is used to estimate nucleons, as an atom contains protons and neutrons in the nucleus (nucleons) and electrons in orbit. The mass of the proton and neutron are much greater than the electron, so nucleons are used in the estimate. Each proton is normally paired with an electron anyway, and since the neutron is roughly the mass of a proton plus an electron, using a nucleon count with the amplitude loss of the proton turns out to be a very good estimate of particle counts and amplitude loss in a large body.

Thus, to estimate the number of nucleons (Q) in a group, or large body, the following is equation is used. The mass of the group is divided by the mass of the proton. For example the mass of the Sun is divided by the proton mass. When the nucleon estimates for each large body is used in the Gravitational Force equation, the results are quite accurate despite a method that is used to approximate the number of particles. The results are seen in the gravitational calculations.

### Earth and Moon Gravitational Force – Calculation

In this example, the force of gravity of the Earth on the Moon is calculated. To do this, the** Particle Count for Large Bodies equation** (see above) is used to estimate the number of nucleon particles (Q) that will be used in the Gravitational Force equation. First, the estimated nucleons are calculated for both the Earth and the Moon. The mass of each is inserted into the numerator and the mass of the proton is inserted into the denominator to solve for nucleon count.
