Neutron-Proton Mass Difference

Authors: Harry Watson

We make the following Ansatz for the mass ratio of the neutron to the electron: m_n /m_e is approx (4pi)(4pi-1/pi)(4pi-2/pi) +ln(4pi) = 1838.682763 where m_n is the neutron rest mass and m_e is the electron rest mass. The CODATA value is 1838.68366158. The neutron decays into a proton and an electron. If ln(4pi) is the neutron-proton mass difference, then m_p/m_e is (4pi)(4pi-1/pi)(4pi-2/pi), where m_p is the proton rest mass.
