Qm virtual particle force on wire, acrose the universe

  1. Feb 26, 2015 #1
    What would be the virtual particle force acting on a wire, which go's from say earth to any part of the universe reseeding away from us at near light speed, or grater ?, would it break,
    and how would we compute it ?

    Virtual particles don't exist as has been discussed in numerous threads on this forum.

    Since any velocity is stationary in its frame it wouldn't break.

    Thanks

    Thanks bill.
    Ok, virtual particles, have no part to play here. As you state they don't exist
    So, I suppose the ? becomes are case of our expanding space, reference point verse, the far end the wire expanding space reference point.
    So not a ? QM can help with.

    Thanks

    The size of the universe is expanding - but that has no effect on objects occupying that space:

    This isn't really a QM issue - you should post over on the relativity forum. Also see if you can make your query more specific.

    Thanks
