# Confused with relativity...

I found another equation on the net: Which you might have learned, $F=\frac{kQ_{1}Q_{2}}{d^{2}}$ This is an equation called the 'point charge' I found the relation between the newton's law of gravitation and this equation. All other variables are same, but only the constants are different... Another thing is that "Electromagnetic waves travel through space at the speed of light and so are gravitational waves" That means, space contains something that helps objects to interact with other objects i.e. gravitational force is caused by the curved geometry of spacetime. Mass is another but interaction with space itself-and now its found that the massive higgs boson is responsible for it. And so, in the same way, electromagnetic charges does so... And all other fundamental forces need their own particles and geometries in spacetime...

Doesn't it make sense? doesn't it apply to the current theories? If so or not please express your opinion by just putting in a comment!

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

In this sense, then we can conclude that both Electromagnetic waves and gravitational waves are both the effects of spacetime itself... and it shows that an electric charge can 'also bend' space in another perspective. This is like picturing empty space as an ocean, and both electromagnetic waves and gravitational waves travel as a sound wave in it at a constant speed. That's how $c$ is a constant.

well friend, electromagnetism has been successfully explained by Quantum ElectroDynamics(QED), in terms of photon exchange.

- 6 years, 10 months ago

Quantum Electrodynamics is a subject in which a physicist called R.Feynman did think of. First, this weird theory came as a logic, probable theory. Then, it became a part of Quantum Mechanics. But why do these guys explain electromagnetism by exchanging particles of light. It DOESN'T make sense. Only mathematics dominates in this field.

Then why believe!!!

But Here, I explained these forces in terms of deformations in fields and it explains almost all effects (including Inertia!!!) with good simplicity. Nothing else. But, using this I got most formulae same as the one explained in quantum theory.

What if this is true?

- 6 years, 9 months ago

It is not true. QED itself is entirely mathematical so saying that only mathematics dominates in this field doesn't make sense because it IS entirely mathematical. And how did you get some formula same as the one explained in quantum theory using yours?

- 5 years ago

Yeah you're right. I understood that Math ITSELF makes sense. But I didn't understand what you were saying about getting formulas.

the higgs boson is not massless. In fact, researchers were surprised at how much mass it had. Also, all the variables are not the same. In the point charge equation the q's are charge while in Newton's Law of Gravitation it is mass.

- 5 years ago

Sorry. It is a mistake typing. It is massive(600 GeV)

I think the dark matter is the thing which helps object to interect with other object

- 6 years, 10 months ago

no it's not
