According to GR as well as Maxwell's theory, when charged particles are accelerated they radiate energy by electromagnetic and gravitational radiation. This energy, according to special relativity, is equivalent to mass.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I wonder, how can elementary particles preserve their fixede/mratios when subject to external forces?

I can show this using the Einstein-Maxwell field equations , but can you explain it without using mathematics?
