Main Question or Discussion Point
According to classical electromagnetic theory,for acceleration a particle must not only change its direction but it should also increase its speed. But Maxwell said that a particle accelerates then it radiates energy.(this is with reference to Rutherford model). But actually the particle is not accelerating because it is changing its direction not speed. So is classical theory wrong or Maxwell didn't get classical theory or Rutherford a genious..??
