I have proposed a theoretical model of Universal Gravitation based upon postulated resonance waves. Using said model, I derive the Newtonian gravitational expression, from which the Newtonian gravitational constant G factors as a combination of other physical constants. A second consequence of the theory is a demonstration that the quantum energy states of the hydrogen atom appear to be related to the length of these resonance waves, shown to have an apparent length of twice the first Bohr radius. Additionally, I have evaluated the Planck mass, length, and time, independently of any experimental value of G. Other relationships and considerations of theoretical interest that result as a direct extension of the theory include hypothetical gravity atoms and evaluation of the Hubble constant, universe density parameter, and cosmic constant. These results are set forth in the text. All though of interest, I do not consider them central to the paper’s major objectives.
