The Fine-structure Constant and Some Relationships Between the Electromagnetic Wave Constants
Year: 2007 Pages: 6
Keywords: fine structure constant, electrodynamic constants
The four primary wave constants are brought together in one place. The often overlooked wave impedance is proposed to be exactly as fundamental as the speed of light. The little-used relationship between these constants highlights a central confusion in conventional electrodynamics units and theory. The fine-structure constant is reformed in terms of the wave impedance of the vacuum.
