Radiation by an Accelerated Charge
Requires a Wolfram Notebook System
Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.
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.
