Update: According to this paper, "On the Interpretation of the Redshift in a Static Gravitational Field", the answer I give below is a common but misleading interpretation. The classical phenomenon of the redshift of light in a static gravitational potential, usually called the gravitational redshift, is described in the literature essentially in ...
From a relativistic point of view, the energy of a particle with mass $m$ and momentum $p$ is given by: $$E^2=m^2c^4+p^2c^2$$ where $c$ is the speed of light. You can clearly see that a massive particle will have some mass energy $E_0=mc^2$, but also some kinetic energy. The photon being massless, the above equation reduces to: $$E_\gamma=pc$$ One ...
When you pluck the string, you impart energy into it that's slowly radiated as sound. There are ways to radiate the energy faster, in which case the string loses energy faster. You're increasing the power and decreasing the time, so energy stays constant.
Trying to address this misconception: I start of with a resistance of 1 ohm by the wire and 6 amperes which result in 6 volts. When I meet the resistor however the resistance increases to let's say 3. Does the current decrease at the same rate the resistance increases? So if the resistance goes down to 3 will the current be 2 so that in the end I have a ...
