**Subject:** Value of the Electron Mass

This is defined by the standards laboratories as the mass inferred from the Rydberg constant in atomic spectra. Its 2006 CODATA value and relative uncertainty is
M = 9.10938215(45) ten power minus 31 kilograms The relative uncertainty of 5 power minus eight is due to that in the Planck constant. This is a non relativistic definition and does not use the de Broglie Einstein theory. The latter theory when used with electron Compton scattering off the carbon atom in methane will produce a greatly varying electron M, which means that the de Broglie Einstein theory is wildly wrong. I suggest that this be shown in UFT 159 by using a fixed carbon mass, as given yesterday, and investigating M. In standards laboratories the electron mass is also determined with a Penning trap and using antiprotonic helium atoms. These methods all define M in a specific way, in a non relativistic context. More generally, M is proportional to the square root of scalar curvature. |
