what is the order of magnitude difference between the strength of the electromagnetic and gravitational fields?
The (gravitational) waves can't exist in this universe if they are in any way related proportionally to electromagnetism.

REGISTER or LOGIN is related to the charge and acceleration of the objects producing the electromagnetic wave. It is possible to have intense gravitational waves produced by merging galactic-center black holes. But since they will have almost zero charge, they will emit almost no electromagnetic waves. It is possible to have intense electromagnetic waves produced by an electron dropping into an inner orbital (eg in an X-Ray machine). But since the electron and target atom have almost zero mass, they will emit almost no gravitational waves.So electromagnetic and gravitational waves involve different fields, and they are not proportional to each other.
what type of energy wave/particle does gravity give off when it lowers potential?
dampening the strength of the gravitational field. ... This has to relate to the electromagnetic field and maybe other fields too.
