Hi! Accelerated charges radiate energy. I've always just taken that to word, but my exams are coming, and I would really like to broaden my understanding a little. How can we go about proving that using Maxwell's theories? I'm not asking for a complete derivation because I know that might be too involved. I just need some hints, how I may approach the problem, or if possible a link to some website with relevant information. I know the derivation for plane EM wave, so if there's anyway that relates to the present question, pls let me know. Thansk very much.

Here area few lecture slides i fond freely available on the web. I had a quick look through and all relevant equations seem to be there and they're not all derived if you want to have a go yourself.
