 Light-Caused Enhancement on Gravitational "Constant" G


Abstract

Einstein's geometric theory of gravity used to be paraphrased by John Wheeler in essentially two statements: Spacetime tells matter how to move, and matter tells spacetime how to curve. With matter including light, the first statement have been widely explored and evidenced in various types of experiments. Though not as obvious, however, in the second statement, matter should in principle include light too, as proclaimed by Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity. This current research aimed to put the second statement under strict quantitative scrutiny using light as the added effective gravitating mass. The results showed, however, that even a dim light, of almost negligible equivalent effective mass, played overly significant role in Newton's gravitational formula, viz, the gravitational "constant" had to be increased in order to go with the evidenced gravitating force. Thus, though laden with successes on cosmological scales, the General Relativity theory appears to fall short on explaining influence from tiny bits of photons in the dark.
