Newton applique les lois de la physique aux soleil et a toutes les planetes et determine leur masse et leur densite 
Planck Length and Speed of Gravity (Light) from Z, Without Prior Knowledge of G, h, or C
For more than hundred years, it has been assumed that one needs to know the Newton gravitational constant G, the Planck constant h, and the speed of light c to find the Planck length. Here weExpand
Demonstration that Newtonian gravity moves at the speed of light and not instantaneously (infinite speed) as thought!
In this paper, we will demonstrate, based on reasoning as well as mathematical evidence and experimental observations, why Newtonian gravity moves at the speed of light and is not, as previouslyExpand
Proof That Newton Gravity Moves at the Speed of Light and Not Instantaneously (Infinite Speed) as Thought
In this paper, we will prove, based on reasoning as well as mathematical evidence and experimental obser- vations, why Newton gravity moves at the speed of light and is not instantaneous asExpand
Finding the Planck length multiplied by the speed of light without any knowledge ofG,c, or ℏ, using a Newton force spring
In this paper, we show how one can find the Planck length multiplied by the speed of light from a Newton force spring with no knowledge of the Newton gravitational constant G, the speed of light c,Expand
Rethinking the foundation of physics and its relation to quantum gravity and quantum probabilities: Unification of Gravity and Quantum Mechanics
In this paper we will show that standard physics to a large degree consists of derivatives of a deeper reality. This means standard physics is both overly complex and also incomplete. Modern physicsExpand
Using a Grandfather Pendulum Clock to Measure the World’s Shortest Time Interval, the Planck Time (With Zero Knowledge of G)
Haug [1] has recently introduced a new theory of unified quantum gravity coined “collision space-time.” From this new and deeper understanding of mass we can also understand how a grandfatherExpand
Understanding (in) Newton’s Argument for Universal Gravitation
In this essay, I attempt to assess Henk de Regt and Dennis Dieks recent pragmatic and contextual account of scientific understanding on the basis of an important historical case-study: understandingExpand

Unification of Gravity with Quantum Mechanics The Beauty and the Beast
Isaac Newton did not invent the gravity constant G, nor did he use it or need it. Newton’s original formula was F = Mm/r^2 and not the formula F = GMm/r^2 , which had evolved over time. Newton’sExpand
Newton Did not Invent or Use the so-Called Newton's Gravitational Constant G. Big G is not Needed in Physics; it Has Mainly Caused Confusion!
Newton did not invent or use the so-called Newton’s gravitational constant G. Newton’s original gravity formula was F = Mm/r and not F = GMm/r. In this paper, we will show how a series of majorExpand
