So, black holes should emit not only photons, but also gravitons, axions (if they exist), and also more massive particles like electrons, protons, and even smaller black holes (with extremely small probability). There exists a misunderstanding here, I think. Black body radiation is connected with electromagnetic radiation, and has been derived and ...
Before addressing your question, there is a point where I kind of disagree with Orca's answer that I'd like to discuss: I will begin with part 2 of your question about plane waves. The use of this Ansatz is the first clue that you are actually treating the situation quantum-mechanically, but ending up with a result that exactly matches the classical ...
We can treat this system classically because it is one of those nice situations in which the quantum-mechanical treatment produces the same results! I will begin with part 2 of your question about plane waves. The use of this Ansatz is the first clue that you are actually treating the situation quantum-mechanically, but ending up with a result that exactly ...
The classic cyclotron with constant acceleration frequency is not well suited for relativistic velocities because the particle's cyclotron resonance frequency decreases while relativistic mass increases 1. This implies that particles accelerated in a classic cyclotron could be treated classically.
