### Retarded time Lienard Wiechert potential

In a potential which needs to be evaluated at the retarded time, is this the time which represents the actual time the "physics" occurred? So $t_{\text{ret}}=t-\frac{r}{c}$, not just because it may be ...

### Polarizability and the Clausius-Mossotti Relation

There seems to be a fairly large inconsistency in various textbooks (and some assorted papers that I went through) about how to define the Clausius-Mossotti relationship (also called the Lorentz-...

### Lorentz force in homopolar motor

There are a lot of videos showing the simple homopolar motors in action. Let's look at this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jyraFLqfqE It is supposed to be working due to the Lorentz force. ...

### A charged sphere with pulsing radius

Radius increases and decreases periodically (as a pulse).And so does the charges on the surface of sphere. I can't get what is gonna happen.the EM waves are produced perpendicularly to motion of ...
