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.

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