    Hello all

    During some recent studying on gravity I was wondering....

    I know relativity only explains the 'big stuff' but doesn't explain how gravity works at the quantum level. So my question is,

    Is there a specific point or size when the effects of gravity change?

    Yes I know it changes at the quantum level, but couldn't find any information of a specific point or example. I figured, if you could work out where it starts to break down, you could possible begin to understand why.

    Kind regards

    Anthony

    Here's my theory of quantum gravity.

    I think I must have mislaid it somewhere.

    That helps to the grand sum of zero.

    Yes, at and below Planck scale.

    Isn't "loop quantum gravity" one of the big current mysteries of physics, or am I thinking of something else?

    ~ I do not mind being put right, or corrected.. but in this case of ' Gravity Effects ' it should be noted that 'gravity ' has the sub title
    'The weaker force'.. It might be building Black Holes and Galactic structures.. but right down on the sub atomic scale..
    ~Gravity is almost a non starter of forces found... electromagnetic, and atomic forces are found to be the formative forces.. of binding.
