Determination of the Velocity of Charged Particles Moving in Five‐Dimensional Kaluza‐Klein Space
Department of Theoretical Chemistry, Faculty of Chemistry, Adam Mickiewicz University, Ul. Grunwaldzka 6, PL 60‐780 Poznań, Poland
A tachyo‐kinematic effect is employed to calculate the velocity of a charged particle moving in five‐dimensional Kaluza‐Klein space. An exact formula has the form v′ = cα1/2mpl/m0, in which α is the fine‐structure constant, mpl is Plank's mass, and m0 is the mass of a particle measured in our physical space‐time.
Keywords: Kaluza‐Klein theory, tachyo‐kinematic effect, tachyonic theory of matter
