Abstract

Planck’s constant and the gravitational constant are comprised of more fundamental quantities of length, mass, and time. Reformulating traditional equations in terms of these fundamental units offers a more granular view of the physical transformations encoded in the equations of physics. The composite structure of h and G conceals a simple model in which maximum unit potentials are reduced by dimensionless proportionality operators. Natural symmetries correlate the three unit dimensions, yielding predictable quantities of physical dynamics. Insights are organized into a New Foundations Model of physics that reformulates traditional constants and equations in elementary form. The New Foundations Model offers a common language for describing quantum mechanical, gravitational, and electromagnetic phenomena.

Comment: I reorganized the manuscript's content as a more structured introduction to the New Foundations Model, which reformulates traditional constants and equations in natural units of length, mass, and time . I also simplified the paper by removing some sections to focus on the essential message, making it easier for the reader to follow. I added several new visual elements to enhance the impact of restating Planck's constant and the gravitational constant in Planck units.
