Consider 2 dipoles separated by a distance of atleast 2 light minutes

  1. Apr 21, 2009 #1
    Consider 2 dipoles separated by a distance of atleast 2 light minutes or so .
    we can call the 1st dipole A .
    the distance btw the opposite charges is small so the field strength is weak same for the other dipole B .
    Now we increase the distance btw the charges in dipole A so the field strength increases and it travels to B.
    at the exact time it reaches B we increase the distance btw the charges of the dipole B . so due to the Field which has reached B it statrs accelerating let's say in the positive x direction.
    Now due to the increase distances btw the charges at B the filed generated by B starts travelling towards A .
    BUT if we combine the charges at A effectively Neturalising it there won't be any charge for the field to act on .
    BUT MOMENTUM is not conserved in this case cuz only b is moving and nothing is moving in the opposite direction.????????????????
