The Einstein-type strong gravity field coupled to the Maxwell field was studied in conformally flat space-time. This enables a relation to be found between the consts. of strong gravity, i.e. (f .approximate 1028 $cm^{-2}$ , Gf .approxinate 6.6 \times 1030 cgs units) and the fine structure const. namely e2/.plcnst.c. In fact, the value obtained for e2/.plcnst.c is.approximate. 1/141, which is quite close to the known value 1/137. This, coupled with earlier work on the strong interaction coupling const. where the value g2/.plcnst.c .approximate 17 was obtained, strongly supports the contention that strong gravity is related to other interactions of nature involving elementary particles.
