What happens when charge accelerates?

  1. Sep 6, 2011 #1
    Hello PF!

    We all know that when charge moves with a certain, constant velocity, a magnetic field forms.

    But what happens when charge accelerates? Is the result trivial(nothing special happens), or something else happens?

    Just curious.

    isn't that just applying a force to a charge? such as the lorentz force?

    Well i Don't know. I am thinking something special happens to fields around it.

    Thank you Studiot. I will read this article in detail after lunch. Seems this will answer my question.
