    How do I see if the equations of motion are satisfied?

    Homework Statement (a) Calculate the Conserved currents $$K_{\mu \nu \alpha} $$ associated with the global lorentz transformation and express them in terms of energy momentum tensor. (b) Evaluate the currents for $$L=\frac{1}{2}\phi (\Box +m^2)\phi$$. Check that these currents satisfy...

    A What is orientation of a needle shaped spacecraft?

    After much thinking I have found that we need to use the equation for tidal forces acting on the spaceship as it approaches the star. and it appears that there is a big difference (a few hundred g's if i remember correctly) in gravitational acceleration between tip of the spaceship and its tail...

    A What is orientation of a needle shaped spacecraft?

    this is a small part of a problem on tidal forces and I wasn't sure what the question asks as it seems to me that more information is needed. Am I right or is there something im missing? the question goes as: "A spacecraft approaches a neutron star of radius 10 km and mass 1.5 times mass of...

    Finding canonical transformation

    I actually couldn't figure out how to edit the question and insert more details into it so I just created another thread at: "https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/canonical-transformation-two-degrees-of-freedom.846585/#post-5309162" and I included my attempt at solution there (I have actually...

    Canonical Transformation (two degrees of freedom)

    so using the Hamiltonian equations of motion I have: $$\dot{Q_1}=\frac{\partial H}{\partial P_1}=aP_1 \Longrightarrow \frac{d(q_1^2)}{dt}=2q_1\dot{q_1}=aP_1\\\dot{Q_2}=\frac{\partial H}{\partial P_2}=b \Longrightarrow \dot{q_1}+\dot{q_2}=b\\\dot{P_1}=0\\\dot{P_2}=0$$ So I guess these are the...

    Canonical Transformation (two degrees of freedom)

    Homework Statement Point transformation in a system with 2 degrees of freedom is: $$Q_1=q_1^2\\Q_2=q_q+q_2$$ a) find the most general $P_1$ and $P_2$ such that overall transformation is canonical b) Show that for some $P_1$ and $P_2$ the hamiltonain...

    Finding canonical transformation

    Homework Statement If in a system with i degrees of freedom the $$Q_i$$ are given what is the best way to proceed for finding the $$P_i$$ so that we have an overall canonical transformation. say for a two degree freedom system we have $$Q_1=q_1^2 $$ and $$ Q_2=q_1+q_2$$ Homework Equations...

    Collision of two photons using four-momentum

    Thank you so much I have found it. it will be as following: the four momentum of system after the collision and creation of two identical particle will be: $$p^{\mu}_T=(2 \gamma mc,0,0,0)$$ now using $$\gamma=1$$ and using the invariance of the square of the total momentum in a reaction we get...

    Collision of two photons using four-momentum

    Then how do we do we solve the last part (part d), I thought i was gonna need it for determining the minimum energy.

    Collision of two photons using four-momentum

    Can we use the Lorentz boost ti find it? I mean looking for a transformation that makes the spatial components of the total four momentum vanish?
