Size of the Electron Speculated from Charge Formation Energy

Authors: Jozsef Garai

The classical radius of the electron can be calculated from first principles. The calculated value contradicts with experiments, which does not show any structure for the electron down to about 2 × 〖10〗^(-20) m. In order to be consistent with these experiments the energy required for the charge formation must exceed the rest mass energy of the electron. Based on energy equivalency it is concluded that the energy required for charge formation emerges from rotation, while the energy of mass formation emerges from translation. Assuming that the tangential velocity of the rotation is equivalent with the speed of light reproduces the classical radius of the electron. In order to comply with the known size limit of the electron the tangential velocity must exceed the speed of light. It is proposed that the ratio between the tangential and translation velocity of the electron is α-1, which gives the radius of the electron to 1.50059 × 〖10〗^(-19) m.
