Steady State Theory of Electromagnetic Radiation and Motion

Authors: Henok Tadesse

The cause of electromagnetic radiation is generally believed to be due to an accelerating charge. However, physicists have also been aware of the inadequacy of this theory and have long been troubled to explain the different phenomena of electromagnetic radiation. This is not to say that accelerating charges never radiate, but to point out that the accelerating charge view does not always hold. Other attempts at alternative explanations have been made by physicists. For example, one idea is that it is the rate of change of acceleration, not acceleration, that causes radiation and radiation reaction. All existing mainstream and alternative theories have failed to reveal the principle behind all radiation phenomenon. What is the basic law of nature that underlies all radiation phenomenon ? This paper reveals a profound law of electromagnetic radiation, which we may call Steady State theory of electromagnetic radiation and motion. The proposed principle underlying all radiation phenomenon is that electromagnetic radiation occurs during the transient period of motion of a charge and ceases when the moving charge reaches steady state condition. The assumption that an accelerated charge always radiates is wrong. The Steady State theory also explains the apparently unrelated phenomenon of stability of planetary orbits. The planetary orbits are so stable because they have reached steady state condition after millions of years of transient, unstable, oscillatory motions. This paper reveals the subtle difference between inertial motion and steady state motion, and proposes to replace the former with the latter.
