Gauss’s Law: Re-Examination and Its Consequences


Gauss’s law is modified to take into account the absorption of the electric field by vacuum. It has important consequences as the absorbed energy becomes a part of the vacuum energy and excites the energy of strings in a form of quantum harmonic oscillators. Thus, vacuum becomes an excitable medium and this helps to understand the basic mechanisms for the conservation of the charge of the electron, electrostatic attraction or repulsion and the energy associated with vacuum.
