1. Hi,
could you please check if the formula for Planck energy here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planck_units#Derived_units is wrong? I cannot get the given value
Thanks  2.

The formula is right, as are all others on the page in question. Re-check your calculation, and pay particular attention to the units, and you will get the correct value in the end.  4. Thanks, Markus,
I read that plancks mass was derived setting the schwarzschild radius equal to the Compton wavelength (with a factor o pi)
(2)GM/c^2 = h (/2pi)
If it makes sense to you, what is the meaning of it. It would be ramarkable that Planck discovered it long before!

and, can a particle have a compton wavelenght smaller than its size?  5. Originally Posted by whizkid Thanks, Markus,

Actually I am not sure how it was first derived, but I suspect it was not via the black hole argument. Having said that, the derivation via Schwarzschild radius and Compton wavelength is by far the simplest one.

The Compton wavelength is a function of mass, not size, so I see no reason why this wouldn't be possible.  Bookmarks
