This paper describes a new scientific link between gravity and electromagnetic forces (GE-Link) in the hope of finding the origin and secret of gravity. In the GE-Link one can use only Electromagnetic (EM) and Quantum Electrodynamics (QED) principles to derive a clear residual electric force synonymous with and indistinguishable from the force of gravity. Atoms and molecules have equal amount of positive and negative charge and, as a result, interact by attractive and repulsive electric forces that almost completely cancel each other out. However, these interactions are not symmetrically identical because the experimentally-verified intermolecular van der Waals interactions exhibit a well known asymmetric characteristic property. This will differentially impact the probability amplitudes of interactions of the force carrier virtual particles under QED. When applied to large objects, this breakdown of symmetry provides the basis for the GE-Link and produces a force in line with Einstein’s General Relativity and, in the limit, Newton’s Law of Gravitation. In addition to Newton’s, the force has a velocity-dependent term and a term proportional to gravitational field strength or intensity, both of these “electrical” terms support similar ones in Einstein’s General Relativity. As an upshot, the GE-Link enables one to theoretically derive the underlying formula for the Newtonian gravitational constant G. An interesting outcome is that radial object velocity actually decreases the force of gravity due to EM/Special Relativity considerations. This feature is expected to have some potential implications for the expansion and dynamics of the universe. It is hoped that this new approach to gravity may ultimately lead to a theory of Quantum Electric Gravity compatible with quantum mechanics and in harmony with the other fundamental forces of nature.
