The Earth-Moon Barycenter By
Charles William Johnson For the past few of years, we have been
proposing the use of Earth/matriX
temperature scale, there are two distinct ways in which to view the thermodynamics
of matter-energy. The boiling point of water [BPW] may be set as unit
one (1.0); or, the freezing point of water [FPW] may be set at unit one
(1.0). By doing so, the temperatures among the different matter-energy
events are easily compared on these scales.
In this manner, the specific numerical representation of the thermodynamic temperature of a particular event shall be relational to the other numbers of the scale employed. In other words, if a particular event is measured on the FPW 1.0 scale that has as a temperature of value 2.5, then we immediately know that that event is 2.5 times greater than the value of the freezing point of water. In this manner, any temperature registered on the scale is relational to either the unit value of the FPW or of the BPW. The are many positive reasons for employing the Earth/matriX scales shown above, as we have been proposing. However, it may be somewhat unreasonable to expect any change in the practice of so many years of use of the complex temperature scales employed today. Nonetheless, with the Earth/matriX scales, we are drawing attention to the relational nature of the thermodynamics of matter-energy. We are working with the premise that a less complex scale may be utilized, which employs the very proportionality of relations existing in matter-energy. The different scales that exist today are almost impossible to offer a comparative perspective in visualizing the numerical values of temperature on a particular scale. And, to compare values among the different scales (Celsius, Fahrenheit, Rankine, etc.) is generally avoided in the literature. In previous essays, we have been drawing
attention to the significance of the BPW In our book on the Earth/matriX thermodynamic temperature scale, we have already drawn attention to the relationship regarding the numbers of the temperature scale with the values of the equatorial and polar radii of the Earth. We invite the reader to consult that earlier study which may assist in illustrating some of the relationships to be emphasized in this essay. In the present discussion, we shall limit ourselves to examining a possible relationship between the numbers relating to the Earth-Moon barycenter and the thermodynamic temperature scale. Possibly one may not suspect any relevancy between the two themes. Were we to examine the literature of physics and chemistry, it would be very difficult to find any relationship drawn along these lines. The theme of the Earth-Moon barycenter is generally discussed in works pertaining to the field of astronomy, and the theme of the temperature scale refers to thermodynamics in physics and chemistry, and astrophysics. As we began examining the thermodynamic
temperature scale in more detail, in our mind, it seemed quite logical
to assign the event of "absolute zero" as "zero", as has been done on
the Kelvin scale, for example. From that it was easy to consider assigning
either the freezing point of water [FPW] or the boiling point of water
[BPW] as the "unit one (1.0)" on the scale. At least, such a scale would
appear to be relevant to the Earth's matrix. By such an assignment of
values, all matter-energy events become comparable in terms of the same
scale of values. And, with that, we began to emphasize the significance
of the relationship between the boiling point of water (
In this study, we shall refer mainly to
the value of More recently, to our surprise, we have found another example within the values relating to the barycenter of the Earth-Moon System. The barycenter is said to represent the center of mass of the Earth-Moon system, and is represented by a theoretical point about which both the Earth and the Earth's moon orbit as they revolve around the Sun. The numerical values, the measurements offered for the different events considered herein, vary according to different astronomers. But, we shall not concern ourselves with the debate of numbers, but rather the thrust of the relationship, the proportionality behind the spacetime events themselves. First of all, by speaking about the barycenter in these terms, one understands that the event reflects constant movement. And, even speaking about a theoretical "point", about which both the Earth and its moon rotate, is daring, since no such point actually exists as such, fixed in spacetime for all space and all time. In fact, the so-called barycenter itself varies regarding its own placement in relation to the Earth and to the Earth's moon. This occurs because even though the "center-points" of the Earth and the Moon are at some 384,405 kilometers apart, the distance itself varies. The Earth-Moon relationship varies in distance from thousands of kilometers from apogee to perigee. Therefore, from the start, the concept of precision in numbers, in speaking about the motion of the planets and their moons, is always variable and itself in constant change. Even the distance referring to the barycenter
changes. At times it is cited as being Now, with such a changing concept, and with only theoretically projected measurements, anything that we may say herein is obviously limited and conditioned by those same variations in measurement. However, it is significant to consider the concept of the barycenter in relation to the proportional spacing of the thermodynamic temperature scale. In other words, it would appear to be quite logical that the Sun:Earth:Moon System would reflect a relation of proportionality that may be reflected or imposed upon the values of the thermodynamic temperature scale. It would be begging the question to state that the Sun:Earth:Moon System determines its own thermodynamic temperature scale, were it not for the fact that a comparative analysis of the numbers may offer us greater insight into this relationship. For our study, we shall employ the numbers
corresponding to the barycenter as
Let us view the numerical values produced by the relationship of the 373.16 BPW and the 273.16 FPW values. 1./ 373.16 1 / A natural relationship of proportion, then, exists among the absolute zero [AZ], the freezing point of water [FPW], and the boiling point of water [BPW]:
0.0 : 273.16 : 373.16 = 1.366085811 With regard to the Sun : Earth: Moon System, something similar occurs in terms of proportionality and fractal, numerical values. The relationship of proportion regarding the barycenter to the center of the Earth and the Earth's surface yields numerical values that are similarly relational to those produced by the relationship of the boiling and freezing point of water on the planet Earth. Such a similarity of fractal values should be no surprise. The same spacetime events that are determining one relationship are obviously determining the other. In other words, it should be expected, that the same proportionality of the Sun : Earth : Moon System is determining the proportionality of thermodynamic events. Now, let us employ the barycenter of the
Earth : Moon System with a different value for the distance of the barycenter
to the surface of the Earth (now, It should be emphasized, that the theoretical concept of the barycenter implies change and movement, variable motion, and therefore we are speaking of a range of measured values. The different values offer a range of numerical fractals that suggest a similar relationship found in the relationship of the freezing/boiling points of water. The range of
That of the thermodynamic temperature scale is:
373 : 1.366 : 273In our studies, we are repeatedly surprised as we find the ancient reckoning numbers relating to events in physics and chemistry. Yet, even more astounding is to find relationships that may be found in spacetime/motion events, in matter-energy itself.The surprise is not so much that the ancients knew these numbers, but that the numbers are actually in Nature. The Sun : Earth : Moon is a single system within the Solar System that we inhabit. It should not be surprising to find a proportional relationship reflected in numerical values and fractals that suggest a direct relationship between the thermodynamic temperature scale of matter-energy and the Sun : Earth: Moon system. For obviously, the spacetime/motion event deemed Sun:Earth:Moon (partially at least) determines the thermodynamic temperature scale. To find a proportionality of matter-energy
shared in one set of events (the Earth-Moon barycenter system) as well
as in the Earth's matrix of thermodynamic temperature scales, would appear
to be comprehnsible. In fact, we could say that it is necessary. The barycenter
of the Earth, then, reflects a similar relation of proportion ( The Sun:Earth:Moon event enjoys a proportional
relationship whose numerical expression determines the numerical expression
and proportion [ The following chart illustrates the relationship of fractal values. From the above analysis, then, the radius
of the Earth [6378 kilometers] to the barycenter of the Earth:Moon system
[4641 kilometers] is For now, we shall simply stop here with the previous analysis for considering the relationship between the barycenter of the Earth-Moon system and the Earth/matriX thermodynamic temperature scale. New Orleans
