  Free space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Free space is considered the baseline state of the electromagnetic field.
According to relativity, radiant energy in free space propagates at the speed of light, independent of the speed of the observer or of the source of the waves.
Free space conveys that the region is absolutely devoid of matter and has no external fields or forces other than those considered in the problem at hand.

 Permittivity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Permittivity is a physical quantity that describes how an electric field affects and is affected by a dielectric medium, and is determined by the ability of a material to polarize in response to the field, and thereby reduce the field inside the material.
In SI units, permittivity is measured in farads per metre (F/m).
The complex permittivity is usually a complicated function of frequency ω, since it is a sumperimposed description of dispersion phenomena occurring at multiple frequencies.

 Physical Implications of Flowing Space
I propose that space is a hitherto unknown substance, the substrate of all physical phenomena.
Space is that which resists the acceleration of matter; that which transmits light at c; that which resists the luminal velocity of matter; that which mediates gravity; and that which produces and sustains subatomic particles and mediates all their interactions.
The free electron is not a point particle, it is as large as its sphere of EM influence in the space.

Obviously it is not free space, but even an \'inert\' gas such as helium has a refractive index, which means that mu and/or epsilon are changed by the presence of matter.

 Permittivity and Permeability of Free Space
Permittivity of a vacuum is a number arrived at beginning with a value for the speed of light in the vacuum and the permeability of the vacuum.
Though most discussions I've encountered on the topic tend to give permittivity and permeability of free space very little discussion, I have always been inclined to believe these concepts are of essential relevance in correctly understanding Nature at a fundamental level.
If we include the permittivity of free space in a new expression for charge such as in: C/e0^1/2 then it follows that we are now dealing with only 1 unit (which it should be in my view) instead of 2.

 [No title]
The "permittivity of free space" is a universal physical constant, like the speed of light or the gravitational constant.
This theory was developed at a time when the structure of matter was not yet understood, and so "free space" was considered a material just like any other.
In vacuum there is no polarization, and the permittivity of vacuum is simply a universal constant whose name says more about the history of electrostatics than about the quantity itself.

Coulomb's constant and the gravitational constant represent the amount of force dynamic space exerts on charge and mass.
The mechanical to electromagnetic ratio of a quantum space is always exactly the same.
Coulomb's constant can further be mathematically represented by the speed of light in free space, permeability of free space, permittivity of free space, and the conductance of free space.

If all of the region of interest is filled by a uniform dielectric, it is clear from the foregoing that all equations developed for fields in free space are now valid in the presence of the uniform dielectric.
and E were determined in a region of free space bounded by equipotentials, that region could just as well be filled with a uniform dielectric, and for the same potentials the electric field intensity would be unaltered.

Thus, a dielectric constant of 52 would mean the permittivity of the tissue is 52 times that of free space at the frequency of interest.
Since the permittivity of the dielectric is always greater than that of free space, the electric field is decreased by the dielectric constant.
Since human tissue is normally relatively free of magnetic materials, the permeability for all simulations was set to the permeability of free space.

Similarly, the electric field at a given point in space is the force per unit charge that would act on a test charge located at that point.
