Derivation of Force and Power Equations
The inconsistency between the power and force equations of motion, (2.4) and (2.1) or (2.5), is so surprising that one is tempted to question the Abraham-Lorentz derivation (, [2, secs. 15 and 22], [3, sec. 180]) of (2.1) and (2.4). Thus, let us take a careful look at their method of derivation.
