But my point is that gravitational mass may not be equal to inertial mass due to some quantum effects in General Relativity, which is Einstein's theory of gravitation.
where m is the passive gravitational mass and n is the inertial mass.
where, respectively, m and m|prime~ are the alumiunum gravitational mass and the platinum one, whereas n and n|prime~ are the aluminium inertial mass and the platinum one.
From the Hamiltonian (6), averaged over time electron passive gravitational mass, [< [m.
Thus, we conclude that in classical physics averaged over time passive gravitational mass of a composite body is equivalent to its energy, taken in the absence of gravitational field [7, 8].
The unlimited collapse depends in fact on the gravitational mass paradigm, which arbitrarily considers the gravitational force as a property of the mass.
That the virtual gravitational mass of the free neutron equals one electron-mass may be seen from the following equation, which interestingly shows the ratio between radii [r.
The radiant flux K[PHI] may be thought of as aether energy at the velocity of light, which is bound in the line of distance R between the gravitating masses, representing the gravitational energy K[PHI]L2/Rc and the equivalent virtual gravitational mass K[PHI]L2/[Rc.
The ratio between the gravitational mass and the substantial mass is,
