In an electrically charged black hole, such as the one described by the Reissner-Nordström metric (i.e. with no angular momentum), where would the electric charge be situated (neglecting any charged ...
If gravity is really the bending of space/time causing objects with mass to experience acceleration, is there a similar physical meaning to 'charge' besides 'a property of matter which causes it to ...
It is written everywhere that gravity is curvature of spacetime caused by the mass of the objects or something to the same effect. This raises a question with me: why isn't spacetime curved due to ...
In contrast to the solution of the conventional Reissner-Nordstrom problem, where the Schwarzschild metric takes on an additional $1/r^2$ term due to the added electric charge, P. Mannheim has in ...
(A friend at work kindly loaned me loaned me his copy of Kip S Thorne's "Black Holes & Time Warps". This may have been ill-advised... :) BH&TW 1994 paperback p.410 Figure 11.5: ... all ...
I was always taught that any accelerating charge produces radiation, but I don't think this condition is sufficient condition. For instance, any free charge on Earth is accelerated due to Earth ...
Well, the question has somewhat been answered before, but there's one part missing, which - I'd think - is in conflict with the physical laws. The earlier reply says that the gravitational pull even ...
I am confused with this question. Does electric charge affect the space time fabric? If so, why? Also if electric charge does not affect the space time fabric, how can we interpret the origin of the ...
What would happen if we have a black hole and we start shooting at it a single electron at a time, and go on doing it forever? Would the electrons start to bounce off eventually?
What prevents a static black hole from accumulating more charge than its maximum? Is it just simple Coulomb repulsion? Is the answer the same for rotating black holes? Edit What I understand from ...
