It is known that if a charged particle accelerates then it emits electromagnetic wave (energy). If so then this means that the work we do on particle, W=F*s, doesn't all go to particles kinetic energy, E=0.5*m*v^2. Then this means that Newton's F=m*a doesn't hold for charged objects, particles, masses, etc.. Is that true? If yes, then what resists particle to accelerate to the speed it deserves ( F*s=0.5*m*v^2, solve for v ). I hope i could explain my point. I am sorry i ask a lot about electromagnetism but it is so damn confusing to me, i cant find peace if i dont understand it properly.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
