Correlation Of The Imbalance Of Electric Charges To Universal Gravitation

[Full Text]



LaShana M. Lewis



Charge, Electricity, Force, Gravity, Orbit, Quantum, Static.



Many theories support that both static electricity and gravity contain properties that allow items to orbit or float around them. Quantum physics, the science of the very small, attributes this to positive and negative charges. General relativity physics, the science of the very large, attributes this to gravity. This paper attempts to discuss any similar properties and dialogue about proofs that suggest that these two concepts may be similarly related. It will examine the relationship between static electricity and gravity by utilizing common examples, formulaic expressions, and everyday equations.
