Guys, I'm looking for some checking of my own understanding about the EM waves given off by accelerated particles. Specifically, is this radiation only due to disturbances in a previously static electric field...therefore we are viewing this disturbance as a wave? Or, is there more to the story? Also, I am wondering if Lenz's Law comes into play here. Are the induced EM fields being caused by the AC current also producing measurable waves? Thanks.
