原始语种摘要: In physics, the term “beauty” is synonymous with the qualities of simplicity and efficiency, and there are historical precedents for its interconnection with highly accurate equations. This paper presents a novel and rigorous approach to formula beautification that begins with mandating theorems of fundamental constant reduction and nonfundamental constant elimination from certain classic equations, with the initial focus on the Rydberg formula. Reducing fundamental constants and removing all nonfundamental elements from the Rydberg constant expression begin with changing its mass component. A comparison of the Rydberg and the Compton equations suggests that a smaller mass is needed to replace the electron rest mass in the Rydberg constant formula. This substitution, in conjunction with...
