Derivation of Force and Power Equations

Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics Monographs book series (LNPMGR, volume 11)


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 ([8], [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.
