Can the Planck Length Be Found Independent of Big G?

Espen Gaarder Haug


In this paper we show how it is possible to measure the Planck length through a series of different methods. One of these measurements is totally independent of big G, but moving from the theoretical realm to the empirical realm would require particle accelerators far more powerful than the ones that we have today. However, a Cavendish-style experiment can also be performed to find the Planck length with no knowledge of the value of big G. Furthermore, the Cavendish style set-up gives half of the relative measurement error in the Planck length compared to the measurement error in big G.
