E=MC2 explains it all.
Being big doesn’t necessarily make things have more gravity, density/mass does.
A pulsar 10 miles in diameter is so dense one teaspoon full of its material would weigh ten million tons, whereas a table spoon of the sun’s core weighs 2250 grammes.
The former has a greater gravitational pull, plus it spins hundreds of times a second and emits dangerous radiation from its poles.
Both have a magnetosphere but look at Mars, which has cooled internally and has no plate tectonics, which has no overall magnetosphere only small sporadic areas of magnetism.
But Mars and the Moon, both dead worlds have gravity, so magnetism cannot be gravity and to consider it as gravity is plain wrong.

Without Googling can you answer the question?

The applied transmission of electrons through suitable materials that work as conduits to conduct the resulting electrical line to the desired target device in order to power it.

and what of static which through out the electrical industries is regard it as a nusance? even though it is the only evidence there is for it to be gravity.

That is nonsensical. Maglev trains disprove your theory

Think of static electricity as a potential difference (or imbalance) but within the same object or material (not like current electricity). A charge builds up on or in the material or object (such as a car) which will discharge when an appropriate conductor (you) comes in contact with it.

: ) so don't touch the landing rail of a helicopter before it Earths it self. or I am Earthed :thumbsup: I have been mesmerised by static for almost as long as I can remember. have an nc in electrical engineering I for some reason never managed to make a carrier with it :bawlin: Your definition is the first time I have heard the expression of static.

"Largeness" has nothing to do with mass - mass is a measure of the quantity of matter in a body. The mass of a small black hole, for instance, may be very much greater than that that of much larger "regular" star.

As to static electricity, it is just like regular electricity - that is, an electron flow caused by a potential difference between one place or thing and another.

how fast dose Earth travel through space? Mass has nothing to do with matter! Your car weighs the same static as it dose in motion. the mass of the car is calculated by stopping distance. two cars traveling at 60 mph in a head on collision the mass energy released has no where to go except the drivers. Both drivers marginal beyond point of impact will be traveling at 120 mph. You ain't gona walk away from that without a higher powers intervention. even wearing a seat belt Your Organs well hit speeds no less than half the Bodies speed. and there is an example of kinetc energy from car to Body to Organs. the mass of a singularity is unknown. I call it conciousness!

Mass is slowed down energy...

Incorrect! the other way round Stooo. momentum increases mass. for the past year I have been formulating a concise explination of reincarnation. the Earth Air Wind and Fire is incorrect. there are only two estates matter can exist, solid or gas. everything inbetween is liquid which is the result of preasure and mass. Matter remains in a stable estate till some influence causes a change. If you take a leap of imgination and consider solid as Our eyes percive all We are familiar with. and gas as the Spirit, it should come as no surprise that Our bodies are a liquid state with currents and flows that rarely if ever mix. if there is mixing then the person is ill. the body is in a constant state of motion, like the mind. gaining authority over the solid and gasious Estates within so flows can balance each other out ( like magnets ++ repel +- generates current) thus aquireing a true Estate that is in harmony with it self and that which supports the Estate, ie You, Me, Us, Our and Aye (Eye as in God is always watching) Everybody *jazz hands*

The Electron can't be defined. A Nobel prize winner in late 18th c. Proved it was a particle, only for his son 20 years later being the recipient of the same award prooving it isn't a particle. Other than inductace and resistance we have very little evidence. It can't be contaied therefore imposable to observe. It is more the case we know what it is not.

I find the butterfly effect an amazing phenomenon in universal terms, an action billions of miles away has an impact on particles here on earth.
Quantem physics is baffling

I am not sure if any of you have felt a force like that.It wasnt painful--but just a massive force field--like a bomb without the shrapnel.
I never mentioned it to anyone for maybe 15 yrs cuz i figured no one would believe me:):).-This happened around 1972


I cut through a lamp cord with a steak knife when I was fourteen. There was a 4mm semi circle bitten out of the knife that was plated with copper from the wire and the voltage. I ended up ten feet away, grinning...


holy s-----so you do understand.!!!!!!


I've balanced on rusty nails with a pair of Wellies on with inevitable results Tom :shake head:
