There are actually two questions which I think are inter-related.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. Consider an electron and Mr. A, both in a box. Let the box be accelerating with accelerationa. Will the charge radiate EM waves for Mr. A also?

2. Considering the fact that gravity and acceleration are equivalent, will astationary(w. r. t. the earth) electron on the earth radiate?
