comment relation between Schrodinger equation and wave equation
For a connection between Schr. eq. and Klein-Gordon eq, see e.g. A. Zee, QFT in a Nutshell, Chap. III.5, and this Phys.SE post plus links therein.

comment Rotational inertia of a ball
Minor comment to the post (v2): Please consider to mention explicitly author, title, etc. of link, so it is possible to reconstruct link in case of link rot.

comment Active gravitational mass of the electron
Comment to the question (v3): OP writes: [...] Is there any experiment that shows that a negatively charged object is source of a stronger gravitational field than the same uncharged object? In other words: The active gravitational mass of an electron is equal to his passive gravitational mass [...] How can an electron be stripped of its charge to compare? Phys.SE deals only with mainstream physics.
