Relativity and Cosmology


Units of a Metric Tensor and Physical Interpretation of the Gravitational Constant.

Authors: Boris Hikin

It is shown that writing the metric tensor in dimensionfull form is mathematically more appropriate and allows a simple interpretation of the gravitational constant as an emergent parameter. It is also shown that the value of the gravitational constant is due to the contribution of all the particles in the Universe. Newton's law of gravitation is derived from atomic considerations only. The Dirac's large number is related to the number of particles in the Universe.
