without a theory of quantum gravity, it may be difficult to answer this question.
So where is the gravity coming from when an electron is still in transit? Is it one place or many?
remember quantum mechanics says the location of a particle is not determined until it is "viewed". So where is the gravity coming from when an electron is still in transit? Is it one place or many?
I'm glad you brought this topic back up. As soul surfer says, gravity is too small and insignificant to measure. And Its a pretty reasonable bet that we will never find out for sure where gravity comes from in context of an individual particle. However, that does not diminish the fact that this question WITHOUT A DOUBT has an answer. Gravity is coming from somewhere, it has to come from either one spot or many, there are no other options. In my opinion, if they actually did create an experiment sensitive enough to measure if the gravity from one particle comes from one spot or many while "not being viewed" it would be a big hit to the idea that objects only exist when we look at them.
Before we move on to gravity I would like to know where does a photon come from when it is emitted by an electron wave function constrained to an atom.Is the answer not that the photon is a wave function too, so on that scale its origin is undetermined (until measured).The same would be true of virtual force carriers, photons and presumably of gravitons if they ever get discovered some day in the distant future.
