The Planck charge and mass values seem rather unusual. Is this an indicator that there is a lack of understanding in current theory, or is there a logical explanation for the magnitude of these two numbers? I read in a paper by Forsythe, that Planck mass might be the geometric mean between the mass of the smallest possible particle and the mass of the universe. Could this be correct?

  • $\begingroup$ The large value of the Planck mass is a reflection of the weakness of gravitational interactions. $\endgroup$ – safesphere Jul 4 '18 at 1:45

  • $\begingroup$ Any comments on the meaning behind Planck charge. This value seems so unlikely? $\endgroup$ – user199479 Jul 4 '18 at 2:20
