Gravitons are hypothetical carriers of the gravitational force travelling at light speed. Since their speeds are identical and they travel radially outward in the same local direction, there would seem to be a grand number of photons and gravitons in any unit volume of this combined field with no relative motions among them. What would be the numerical ratio of gravitons to photons. I wonder if there are interactions between these parallel propagating, closely spaced gravitons and photons. I also wonder the actual numbers of photons and gravitons reaching a square meter of the surface of the earth per second.
Re: What is the numerical ratio of gravitons to photons departing the sun?
