## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi there

When a charge is accelerated it produces electromagnetic radiation. I was wondering if anyone knew the equation relating the frequency of emitted radiation to the size of the charge and the value of the acceleration.

My understanding is that it relates to Maxwell's equations, but I was hoping for a simpler equation.

Many thanks
