Forces of Nature, Gravity, Newton's Laws, Acceleration, Inertial mass, Gravitational mass
This paper is to provide a new perspective to the Principle of Equivalence in an examination of that foundation point for General Relativity and in the process give a new view on the connection of acceleration and gravity for matter in space. The proposal is that matter and space are truly connected and that connection gives a new interpretation to acceleration and gravity. The Strong, Weak, & EM forces each have a unique interaction with nature. This paper proposes that the fourth force has its own long hidden deceptive unique interaction in the universe where it emerges as Gravity through the action of acceleration of matter at any scale in Space and resulting in the curvature of Space. This perspective shows the source of Gravity across all scales from the atomic to the galactic. The dance of quarks in protons and neutrons, electrons in motion around the nucleus, atoms and molecules in motion are all cases where there is acceleration. This acceleration at the atomic level is small but it is always happening; so all mass presents gravity from this acceleration interacting with Space. This is Gravitational Mass. If mass is present, there is gravity. If an object as a collection of atoms or molecules experiences acceleration interacting with Space, we then have Inertial Mass.
