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 the Planck constant (h) to calculate photon energy, the Coulomb constant (k) to calculate the electromagnetic force, and the gravitational constant (G) for calculating gravitational force. Many of the constants are simply numbers that have been given letters to make an equation work.

EWT – Only Five Constants

All of the equations on this site can be derived with four universal wave constants and one constant that is a property of the electron for a total of five wave constants. They are:

  • Wave speed (the speed of light)
  • Wave amplitude (longitudinal)
  • Wavelength (longitudinal)
  • Density
  • Electron wave centers

Simplified Classical Form

By using a principle from EWT, the units of charge (Coulombs) are replaced with units of distance (meters), which allows a simplification of fundamental physical constants even in classical terms.  All electron-based energy and force equations can also be derived from a total of five fundamental classical constants.  They are:

  • Planck length
  • Planck time
  • Planck mass
  • Planck charge
  • Electron classical radius

The Four Fundamental Classical Planck Constants

The values and units for the wave constants are found here and the classical constants are found here.  All other constants used in the equations can be derived from one of these five constants. Of the known constants in physics, 23 fundamental physical constants have been simplified and derived by the energy wave constants. This includes the aforementioned proportionality constants (h, k, G) and many others. A summary table lists all the constants and a page is dedicated to each constant with a derivation in both wave constant and classical constant formats.


Where is the Proof?

The proof of the wave constants used in energy wave theory is:
