Force Unification: Is the Strong Force Simply Gravity?
Is the strong force simply relativistic gravity? The very good, semiquantitative agreement shown in Table 1.1 and in Chaps. 7–10 between experiment and the Bohr-type rotating neutrino model described in Chap. 6 and summarized in Table 1.1 or 7.1 provides strong support to a positive answer. This is of course at the beginning quite counterintuitive since we have always been taught that strong force and gravity are the strongest and weakest forces, respectively, in nature. Their coupling constants differ by some forty to sixty orders of magnitude, and it is generally but rather vaguely anticipated that these coupling constants will merge, together with the electrostatic coupling constant, at distances of the order of the Planck length (∼10−35 m) and energies of the order of the Planck mass energy (∼1019 GeV ). A quantitative examination of the coupling constant behavior of relativistic gravity, assisted by the rotating neutrino hadron model, may thus provide useful and perhaps conclusive information.
