The plot shows the power distribution of an accelerated charge. The acceleration is positive and along the axis. The expression evaluated is the exact solution for a relativistic charge; you can control the velocity of the charge, , where is the dimensional velocity and is the speed of light. The gray line is the direction of maximum power.
