## G = 4hf/3

With activity increasing on the use of my calculations, it may be a good time to make a statement on the copyright of my main calculation.

The formula G = 4hf/3 was derived in November 2005. The formula appears in an autumn 2006 family coat of arms done in a Fairmont public school art class by my daughter, and which hangs at the end of our hallway at home. The formula also appeared in a January 8, 2007 article in the Fairmont Sentinel, and on a sheet of paper I held up in a KEYC – Mankato television interview aired on January 18, 2007.

The formula G = 4hf/3 can be used one of two ways. One can use a conventional, measured value of the gravitational constant for G, and calculate the frequency of a graviton. Alternatively, one can convert exactly one third the proton mass to equivalent energy as a massless photon through Einstein’s equation E = mc^{2}, solve for f, the frequency of the photon, through the formula E = hf, and come up with a value of the gravitational constant through my formula G = 4hf/3. This value of G will then be as accurate as the measured value of the mass of the proton.

For those just starting to learn physics, “h” is Planck’s constant and is equal to 6.626 x 10^{-34} J-s. It is easiest if you keep all units in the ‘kg-m-s’ system for these calculations.
