Unified Field Theory for Gravity and Electromagnetism and Its Explanation for Dark Matter Observations

  • 1. Xi'an Jiaotong University


Dark matter is one of the most mysterious physics observations today and has puzzled the scientific community for decades. We can detect its gravitational effect but not the matter itself. After years of study and billions of dollars in spending by some of the top researchers in the world, we are only uncovering more questions. By looking at the problem from a different angle, the fundamentals of gravitation, I believe the following new gravity force equations in this paper can solve dark matter puzzle we face.

F=Y_1 (f_1 f_2)/r^2

F=Y_2 fm/r^2

With every month comes new papers and ideas on this topic. One theory attempts to explain dark matter as photons with very small amounts mass and that the numbers of photons in the universe could cover the observed 85% of missing matter. This theory has not progressed far, as with every other hypothetical tiny particle theory for dark matter; however, I do believe that photons create the dark matter observations we see.

My study believes EM waves, or photons, are the reason for the observations of dark matter but not because they have mass. If my new theory of gravity is correct, EM waves or photons are massless but would still have a gravitational effect. While most theories try to explain the source of dark matter, I used dark matter observations as the best evidence for this new theory of gravity.


This paper defines the gravitational field as a medium with elastic properties, and the gravitational force occurs when matter creates a more concentrated region in the gravitational field. Further, this paper explains how electromagnetic waves are changing concentrations in this field. Hence, the gravitational field and electromagnetic field are the same, called the unified field. Based on this understanding of the unified field, there are attractive forces between electromagnetic waves as defined as: F=Y_1 (f_1 f_2)/r^2 There are also attractive forces between electromagnetic waves and matter possessing mass at rest. This force is defined as: F=Y_2 fm/r^2 Dark matter observations support this unified field theory.
