Deriving Planck's Constant from Its Dimensional Peculiarities, Realistic Fluid Models, and Larmor's Radiation Law— “This May Signal Its Rejection as a Fundamental Constant of Physics”—Dirac, 1963

A physically realistic interpretation of Planck's constant is given by its dimensional peculiarities and by a realistic phenomenology. On this basis, Planck's constant is derived from Larmor's radiation law. A clue to a realistic meaning for the fine‐structure constant is also suggested.
