mass, hidden mass, gravitation, 4 th Law of Newton, Solar system, the Sun, planets, dark matter
The so called “gravitational masses” or masses tout court, that figure themselves in the 4-th Law of Newton, also known as the Universal gravitation law, are by their nature effective areas of gravitating objects, which effective areas are integrated surface areas of the atomic nuclei of interacting objects opposing other ones and unscreened by other nuclei. These so called masses that would be better to call “official” masses cannot measure the body’s amount of matter. As we understand, the “entire” mass of an object or mass tout court is integrated volume of all atomic nuclei of the object. The entire mass is composed with the effective or visible mass, the projection of which onto a diametric section surface makes up the effective area, which by its nature coincides with the official mass, and the hidden mass, the projection of which laps over the effective area. In bodies of relatively small dimensions, such with which we are accommodated, the official masses have to be proportional to the entire masses, which explain the usual view on mass as on measure of the amount of matter. In bodies of relatively great dimensions especially in stars including the Sun, the part of the hidden mass in the entire mass of the body is quite important, which would claim revising the established views on their masses and structures.
