Electric Constant

Background

The electric constant, otherwise known as vacuum permittivity, is the capability of the vacuum to permit electric field lines. It may be used instead of Coulomb’s constant to determine charged particle interaction and force.

Energy Wave Constants – Equivalent

The following is the representation of this fundamental physical constant expressed in energy wave theory. Using energy wave constants, its value was calculated and shown to match the known value in the Summary of Calculations table.

 

Electric Constant

The electric constant is the inverse of 4*π k (Coulomb’s constant). Thus, this value is derived based on Coulomb’s constant.

 

Electric Constant


The complete derivation of this constant is available in the Fundamental Physical Constants paper.

 

Note: See Coulomb’s constant for an explanation of the units. When C (Coulombs) is adjusted to be m (meters), the units align as expected. The electric constant units are the inverse of Coulomb’s constant, thus the explanation is the same.
