Magnetic Constant


The magnetic constant, otherwise known as vacuum permeability, is the magnetic permeability in the vacuum. In the Geometry of Spacetime, it was found to be a linear density, relating two fundamental units of mass and distance. The units, which are derived at the bottom of this page, resolve to be the equivalent of a kilograms per meter.

Waves travel in a medium, as illustrated in the next figure.  The magnetic constant represents the amount of granules in a given length for this medium, better expressed in unit form as kilograms per meter.  When the motion of granules are contained in a particle as standing waves, which by definition contains energy but zero net propagation of energy outside of its boundaries, it is measured as particle rest energy. When wave speed (c) is not considered, it is measured as particle mass (kilograms).  When granule energy is measured as traveling waves beyond a particle’s boundary, it has been given the wrong unit and called a Henry.  The Henry can be resolved to kilograms when the unit of charge (Coulombs) is replaced with wave amplitude (meters). This simple change unifies charge and mass equations.

Derivation – Magnetic Constant

The magnetic constant can be derived classically from the Planck mass, Planck length and Planck charge. It is the inverse of the electric constant, without wave speed (c).  Since wave speed is related to Planck length and Planck time, it removes the time component which appears in the electric constant derivation.

The units are measured in kg/m compared with H/m for the magnetic constant, where H is Henries.  When Henries is derived in SI units to Coulombs and replaced with meters, the units resolve correctly to kg/m.

Magnetic Constant Units Derived


Its value was calculated and shown to match the known value in the Summary of Calculations table. The derivation of this constant is available in the Fundamental Physical Constants paper.
