On Gravitational Belts in Atoms
Keywords: toroidal models, vortices
In previous papers, toroidal models of electron and proton were proposed. Tangential velocities of the particles drawing electron torus surface are equal to light velocity c in free ether. Therefore, electron does not induce additional vortices in ether at least as a first approximation. Meridional velocity of the particles drawing proton are 1.42c. This explains why proton induces series of vortices in the proton surrounding ether. The local light velocities in the first 194 vortices decrease up to (...) and then increase up to (...) making steps. Nuclear 194 vortices have mass of proton and atomic 137 vortices have mass of electron. There exists a transition belt of 1836 vortices between 194 nuclear and 137 atomic lines. Local light velocity in these 1836 vortices is stable and equal to (...)/137 and their mass decreases from the proton mass to the electron mass. Such gravitational belts with decreasing mass are essential in multi-electronic atoms. In particular, they define quantity of electrons in hulls(sp?) and character of X-ray radiation.
