Also when considering the radiation reaction force (or self-force) as a series, the first term, proportional to the acceleration goes to infinity for a point charge. In this case how would you treat a charged particle in free fall, i.e. what would be its equation of motion? And I am assuming that this particle should radiate as it is in free fall, since radiation is proportional to the square of the acceleration.

Please HELP! :)
