An Oscillator Model for Nuclear Mass

Authors: Jean Louis Van Belle

In this paper we use the oscillator or Zitterbewegung model of an electron to offer an equally elegant explanation of the mass of nucleons (equally elegant as the explanation we offered for the electron mass, that is). It is based on the same ideas: a nucleon charge with zero rest mass in orbital motion. The difference is the charge. The nucleon charge is a different charge (different from the electric charge, that is). A different charge implies a different force. A different force implies a different amplitude of the oscillation – and we, therefore, find a different Compton radius for the nucleon. Our interpretation of Wheeler’s idea of mass without mass – based on equating the E = m·a2·ω2 = m·c2 using the tangential velocity formula c = a·ω – remains valid. As an added bonus, we get an equally simple and elegant formula for the coupling constant for the strong force.
