## On the Expansion of the Universe

**Authors:** Jorge de Sousa e Meneses

It is accepted from the beginning that nothing can escape from the Universe and a
distance is found at which the expansion and compression of the space around a mass
are in equilibrium. With this in mind the density of the space is calculated. The
value obtained matches the value obtained experimentally by measuring cosmologic redshifts.
Applying this concept to the mass of the Universe a second equation is found. This
equation, together with the first one, allows the age of the Universe to be calculated
and a value is found which is between the normally accepted limits. The same equations
allow the deduction of the density equation calculated by Milne and the relativistic
equation deduced by Friedmann. Finally, with these equations, the relation between
the mass of the Universe, the speed of light and the universal constant of gravitation
is found. This relation indicates possibly new areas of investigation.
