# Can a virtual particle from a maget accelerate another particle on a linear path?

• B

## Summary:

Can a magnetic field be directed strait path for particle to travel upon?
Summary: Can a particle accelerator accelerate gaseous fuel?

Does space-time differ for detonating ionized fuel moving near the speed of light within a magnetic field such as a particle accelerator?

The answers to all three questions (the one in the title and the two in the post) are “no”.

@Nonametheone In the future please ask one question at a time and give folks some time to answer before posting a new unrelated question.

Should I delete this question?

Yes but I still think virtual particles can have linear motion without a receiver. I will read more of it soon. I still have yet to learn equations.

Virtual particles don't move. They're bookkeeping devices for certain calculations which mathematically (!) look like particles in certain ways.

Then what are the particles that a magnet emits?

There is no particles that magnet emits.

So what is a magnet emitting?

Nothing. Magnetic or electromagnetic field is just there, it's not emitted in the form of particles.

Does space time differ for matter with magnetic properties moving within a magnetic field in a particle accelerator?
Magnetic field can't be directed as a path, field created will be around the magnetic material.
