Relativity and Cosmology


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.
