The reasoning behind this question is to align the ratios of the proton potential in energy per charge to the speed of light in distance per time. As these two dimensions appear to be related, having identical numerical values would simplify the maths when making calculations in physics.


(938,272,310 Joules per Coulomb)/(299,792,458 meters per second)

Basically setting the units so 1 J/C = 1 m/s

For our friends in the U.S. this would be like bringing back the foot ;)

In my brief paper below I show why potential and speed are one and the same thing.
