From the equivalence principle we know that the gravitational and inertial mass of a body have same values. But I'm just wondering what would the universe be like if they had different values?

    $\begingroup$ This question got downvoted within 10 minutes. It doesn't deserve it. It is not "If the universe was different, what would it be like?" That doesn't have a good answer. This is specific. People have done experiments to see if the two masses are the same. What would we expect to see if they were different? $\endgroup$ – mmesser314 Dec 18 '17 at 13:58

  • $\begingroup$ @mmesser314 To be fair, it's not clear to me that he is saying "different from each other" or just "different" in general. The question isn't really clear enough IMO. $\endgroup$ – JMac Dec 18 '17 at 16:05

    $\begingroup$ I mean their values were different. $\endgroup$ – soumya Dec 18 '17 at 16:09

    $\begingroup$ @BobKnighton Read the edit history, question wasn't clear originally. $\endgroup$ – JMac Dec 18 '17 at 16:26
