Perpetual motion occurs all the time.
According to Newton a mass will keep moving at the same speed
unless it is disturbed by a force.
I could explain why but my explanation might be too "interesting" for the mentors
on theory development!
In the Kortewege de Vries equation what is the physical origin of the
linear and non-linear terms? I'm thinking of the explanation of a water wave here.What properties of the water molecules cause the profile and stability of the wave?
A mass such as a proton moving through a volume of particles with which it can exchange force mediating bosons , would get closer to some of the surrounding particles as it moved faster because it would take a bigger force to slow the proton at a higher speed (assuming the force between the...
you are referring to the Quarkconfinement-situation. Yet you are mixing two things : the assymetry in EM does not occur from these fenomena, but from the magnetic monopole
I was aware of Dirac's thinking.
But I am talking about electric charges on the one hand
You are using the gamma-factor for "relativistic mass" from special relativity. Note that this factor is a consequence of the fact that the light speed is a universal constant. It is a property that is omnipresent in special relativity, yet it has nothing to do with mass-generation in...
I think I have been specific.However, I will state again what I am trying to do.
There is an asymmetry for electromagnetism from the point of view that the electric charge on electrons can exist independently of other charged particles, whereas the electric charge on quarks only exists in the...
This area you are talking about is another speculation. What is your proof for making such a statement.
The de Broglie wavelength itself was speculation when it first came out.
Besides a transition from excited to groundstate has very high probability so that it...
Is it possible that electron transitions from a high energy state to a low energy state are caused by the electrons interacting with some other partilces in the space around atoms.Let's look at the case of a hydrogen atom:
According to Niels Bohr, for an electron, r = n^2 h^2 / (8 pi x epsilonx...
If the postulated residual force carrier moves at a maximum of 100 m/s then this is the maximum speed it can impart to a positron or electron.
An electron moving close to the speed of light through a bubble chamber of a particle accelerator experiment would take 10^-7 seconds to cross 10...
Here is an objection : you are trying to build a theory far away from any observational possibility, this is not science.
Then I must bring a quantitative observational possibility into this discussion.
The planck length is not proven to be the shortest length in the...
The problem is that it is the color charge that is confined, not the electric charge
But the electric charges of 1/3 and 2/3 are effectively confined too - they cannot exist as independent entities, just as parts of hadrons.
The reason that electrons and positrons do...
For an ideal gas in which there are no electric forces between gas molecules I would say the answer is no.For real gases the answer is no because by the relation E =k x T if the fine structure constant changed
(and there is no evidence that it does!) then the electric forces between molecules...
Is it the case that, for mass being caused by a particle being repelled by a field (the bigger the force of repulsion, the greater the mass),
that the field has to give the relation, for one unit of mass:
force is inversely proportional to
[(distance between particle which has mass and...
If the spin-1/2 particle didn't have color charge, the boson that the quark becomes does(AFAIK no bosons with color charge have been experimentally observed).
What if the colour field is carried in the boson as vectors like electric and magnetic field vectors? Would...
Quarks can't exist in isolation and the electric charge on quarks can't exist in isolation from the electric charges of other quarks either.The electric charge of leptons like the electron can exist in isolation.Isn't electromagnetism showing a kind of asymmetry here: symmetry could be restored...
If the universe oscillates between a Big Bang and a Big crunch,
can two small volumes of dark energy, at opposite ends of it, be considered to be undergoing simple harmonic oscillation?
The potential energy of an oscillator could be given by G m1 m2 /r where
m1 is the mass of a volume of...
You have made it sufficiently clear that you aren't interested in rigorous scientific or philosophical debate.
Who defines what is rigorous and what is scientific?
There are scientists on these forums and there are plenty of physicists too...
LOOK IN THE INDEX ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE PAGE AND AT THE ENTRY "LAMB SHIFT"
Anyway, if an electron could in principle interact with some other particles which pass through the space around the proton, it would take some time...
It is simply not the case that distance from the nucleus determines the energy state of an electron.
This says it does for a hydrogen atom (the lamb shift).
You are treating the atom like a miniature version of a solar system, and it is just not like that.
An electron is on average at 0.529 Angstroms from a proton in its groundstate - QM prediction of this matches Bohr's classical prediction.So it is reasonable of me to...
Actually, since you didn't use QM, you didn't even disprove anything, since none of it had any meaning. You can't talk about accelleration caused by interaction on that scale in an atom
That would be surprising given that Rutherford calculated the size of an atomic...
If you insist on throwing around theory instead, try to mathematically show (using QM) that an electron in a given state, subjected to a given energy density causes it to change orbitals in such a way that exactly equals the uncertainty principle.
Hint: It won't work.
