Parameterisation of the equation of motion for a relativistic massive point particle

The equation of motion for a relativistic massive point particle is given by: $$\frac{dp_{\mu}}{d \tau} = 0,$$ where $p_{\mu}$ is the four-momentum defined by $p_{\mu} = m \frac{dx_{\mu}}{ds/c}$, ...

Magnetic force between two point charges

I tried to derive the magnetic force between two point-charges for iterative computation. Starting out with Lorentz force and Biot–Savart law for a point charge. $$ \vec F = q_2( - \Delta \vec{v} ...

Point charge moving towards a conducting plane

A point charge $q$ of mass $m$ is released from rest at a distance $d$ from an infinite grounded conducting plane. Show that the charge hits the plane after an amount of time given by: $ \Delta t= ...
