What is a fundamental physical constant?

fundamental physical constant is a physical quantity that is generally believed to be both universal in nature and constant in time.

There are many fundamental physical constants that appear in equations today, such as Planck’s constant (h) to calculate photon energy, or Coulomb’s constant (k) to calculate the electromagnetic force, or the gravitational constant (G), when using Newton’s law for calculating gravitational force. Many of the constants are simply numbers that have been given letters to make an equation work.


How can they be explained in energy wave theory?

One of the fundamental physical constants also exists as a true constant in energy wave theory – the speed of light (wave speed). The remaining fundamental physical constants, such as Coulomb’s constant (k) and the gravitational constant (G) are representations of non-variable components in physics equations, now represented by energy wave constants. They are no longer needed in equations when using the energy wave equations.

20 fundamental physical constants known commonly throughout physics are simplified and derived by four universal wave constants in this theory: wave speed, wavelength, amplitude and density and by a variable that is constant to the electron. These values of these constants are found in the Equations section.
