In this paper, we show that the Schwarzschild radius can be extracted easily from any gravitationally-linked phenomena without having knowledge of Newton’s gravitational constant or the mass size of the gravitational object. Further, the Schwarzschild radius can be used to predict a long series of gravity phenomena accurately, again without knowledge of Newton’s gravitational constant and also without knowledge of the size of the mass, although this may seem surprising at first. Hidden within the Schwarzschild radius are the more fundamental mass of the gravitational object, the Planck length, which we will assert contain the secret essence related to gravity, in addition to the speed of light (the speed of gravity). This seems to support that gravity is quantized, even at the cosmological scale, and this quantization is directly linked to the Planck units. This also supports our view that Newton’s gravitational constant is a universal composite constant of the form G = lp^2c^3/hbar , rather than relying on the Planck units as a function of G. This does not mean that Newton’s gravitational constant is not a universal constant, but rather that it is a composite universal constant, which depends on the Planck length, the speed of light, and the Planck constant. This is, to our knowledge, the first paper1 that shows how a long series of major gravity predictions and measurements can be completed without any knowledge of the mass size of the object, or Newton’s gravitational constant. At minimum, we think it provides an interesting new angle for evaluating existing theories of gravitation. Gravity Without Newton’s Gravitational Constant and No Knowledge of the Mass Size
