Subtitle: What Can We Make of the Joule Constant?
“Knowledge must always precede application.”
James Prescott Joule was a physicist who investigated the nature of energy and its relationship to mechanical work. He laid the groundwork for our understanding of energy, and it is no wonder the unit for energy is in Joules.
So, classical and modern physics identify energy as a quantity in Joules, and this quantity is universally applied in every domain of the universe, whether the macro world of non-charged bodies or the micro world of charged particles.
Now, this general, indiscriminate application of energy in Joules is being rejected by post-modern physics. This is because of the new fact that the energy in Joules is not universal. Particles of the atomic world experience a different form of energy, which is the energy in Joules/s2.
Read the article below to learn more about the above, and so that you will see how the Joule constant which I am about to discuss in this article is technically applied in post-modern quantum mechanics.
This article comes as a result of post-modern quantum mechanics which now revolutionalizes our understanding of the atomic world. The new post-modern quantum mechanics is atom-observer based, unlike modern quantum mechanics which is observer based.
This implies that modern quantum mechanics established by Planck, Einstein and the rest is concerned with how the operations of the atomic world satisfy the perspective of the observer. It does not describe how the operations of the atomic world truly occur in the atom, according to the perspective of atomic bodies.
The sole observer based description of modern quantum mechanics produced one fundamental constant called the Planck Constant. However, in the post-modern, observer-atom based quantum mechanics, we have two fundamental constants called the Planck constant and the Joule constant
The primary distinction between phenomena in the atomic world and those outside the atomic world is that light travels at a constant speed outside the atom and accelerates inside the atom. This two relative natures or essences of light are responsible for the two fundamental constants of post-modern quantum mechanics.
Now, while Planck constant is in Js in relation to energy in Joules and time, the Joule constant is in Joules in relation to energy in Joules/s2 and time in squared. One of the imports of this is that the classical concept of energy based on Joules does not apply in the atomic world. The atom does not recognize the energy in Joules.
Inside the atomic world, the Joule constant does not signify energy, just as the Planck constant does not signify energy outside the atomic world or in the domain of the observer. You must come to understand how the Joule constant is interpreted in post-modern quantum mechanics.
Post-modern physics makes us realize that the Planck constant only applies outside the atomic world, in the domain of the observer. The atom does not recognize Planck constant but it recognizes its translation or its analogy which is the Joule constant.
The import of this article is to raise the question, what can we make of the Joule constant? This is because for now, we cannot experience the atomic world like charged bodies, considering the fact that we are non-charged bodies existing outside the atom.
We now know that light accelerates inside the atom, and thus realize the Joule constant, not because we entered into the atomic world but because of the immense power of absolute science.
So, we now have a constant, the Joule constant, yet we can’t quantify it according to practical science, however, we are certain that it exists. The atomic experience is just remote from our experience of the universe as non-charged bodies.
Space, time, light and gravity are all experienced differently in the atomic world, so we are greatly limited by exclusive intra-atomic experiences from having a direct practical investigation of the atomic world.
One would imagine that if we were transformed into charged bodies, then we will know the true value of the Joule constant. However, does knowing the true value of the Planck constant change anything? No, not much.
It doesn’t change much because of the suiting way the equations of post-modern quantum mechanics transform between an observer and an atom. This is evident from the article referenced above.
A hypothetical observer inside the atom who can determine the Joule constant will find out that he cannot determine the Planck constant, just as an observer outside the atom can determine the Planck constant but cannot determine the Joule constant.
So, we have an exclusivity principle in the post-modern, observer-atom based quantum mechanics. This exclusivity principle of post-modern quantum mechanics states that: no body, whether charged or non-charged, can simultaneously account for the Planck and Joule constants.
The exclusivity principle of post-modern quantum mechanics must be distinguished from the uncertainty principle of modern quantum mechanics. Furthermore, the exclusivity principle applies in a manner that is different from the uncertainty principle because of the sharp divide in the nature of charged and non-charged bodies.
But if we can in the nearest future place ourselves as atomic observers, and it turns out that we can simultaneously determine both constants, then the margin of error for either constant will depend on how we tend correspondingly towards the property of charge or non-charge.
With the above possibility, the sharp divide between the resolution of the Joule and Planck constants fades, as their contiguity increases. However, for now, let’s take that the exclusivity of the Joule and constant and the Planck constant holds, even as the two relative essences of light are exclusive to the observer and the atom in a respective manner.
What am I trying to inform you so far? In simple terms, I am saying that we cannot determine the Joule constant not just because we exist outside the atom, but also because we do not have charge.
Until we can experience light as an accelerating wave and not a wave moving at constant speed, we will never be able to determine the Joule constant. Gratefully, this practical limitation does not imply that we can’t make sense of the Joule constant.
We understand by the new laws and principles of post-modern physics the implications of the Joule constant. We know how such a constant should govern and determine the experiences of atomic particles.
The proper understanding of the exclusivity principle shows importantly that the Planck constant which we can easily determine cannot be determined in the frame of a charged body particle. This is important.
In the atomic world, we experience the practical limitation of the Planck constant, while outside the atomic world, as observers, we experience the practical limitation of the Joule constant. No world is preferred or has the upper privilege.
Post-modern physics, therefore, convinces us that our inability to determine the Joule constant is not an inherent practical limitation, it is due to the exclusivity principle. This is what we can make of the Joule constant.
Until next time.
