Frequency of electromagnetic radiation of an accelerated charge

  1. Nov 16, 2008 #1
    we know the total power of radition Radiation from an Accelerated Charge is
    p=2/3 (k e^2 a^2)/c^3
    but what is the frequency of such radiation?
    and is that for the all observers the same?

    There is a broad range of frequencies unless the acceleration is periodic.
    The spectrum is determined by the time dependence of the acceleration.
