Active Space as a Source of Inertia

We suppose that, according to a model of interaction with an electron, space acts perpetually on moving particles. When a force is applied, the acceleration occurs as result of the superposition of accelerative and inertial forces. But when the application of the force ceases, the particle continues to move, by virtue of the interaction of active space, which originates a de Broglie monochromatic field associated with the particle, whose group velocity is constant. A wave‐function, which is an exact solution of a one‐dimensional Schrödinger partial differential equation, provides the values of the gravitational and inertial forces through which the traditional inertia comes out of nature's scenery and gives rise to an up‐to‐date causal model.
Keywords: gravitational force, inertial force, active space, de Broglie‐Einstein postulate, Schrödinger wave equation
