## Background

The Planck charge is a measure of electric charge in the Planck unit system. It is defined as the elementary charge of an electron divided by the square root of the fine structure constant.

## 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.

### Planck Charge

It is known in physics that Planck charge is related to the elementary charge and the fine structure constant. In wave theory, it is simply based on wave amplitude. Charge is therefore amplitude. As particles interact with each other, they constructively or destructively combine waves that affect amplitude. Since charge is based on wave amplitude in meters, Coulombs becomes a unit that is measured in meters and not a separate SI unit.

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

** Note: **Units are in meters, not Coulombs (C), as wave theory measures charge based on amplitude, which is in meters.
