Fine Structure Constant a Mystery Resolved

Authors: Jose P. Koshy

The Fine Structure Constant, regarded as a magic number, was introduced in 1916. Now, after 100 years, the mystery of it is revealed: it is a constant related to spherical-packing. The approximate value of it can be given as a ≈ (42/1838)/(3.14), where 1838 represents the number of entities packed and 42, the number of entities in the diameter, and 3.14, the mathematical constant pi.

Comments: 5 Pages. The paper will soon be submitted to a relevent journal
