comment Binary Mass Function Plot
@LeonhardLeibniz I don't think the function is transcendental for fixed $\theta$. The equation is a cubic polynomial in $m_1$ and $m_2$, which can then be solved for $m_2$ in terms of $m_1$ because cubic equations are solvable.

@Floris I believe Pertunia is using the definition found here: physicsclassroom.com/class/refrn/Lesson-1/…

I tried to edit your question for brevity. Is it still faithful to your question?

@harogaston I agree. It isn't a complete duplicate, so I thought I'd leave it up to the OP.

comment The fundamental equations of electromagnetism
@RyanL Would it always be possible to do so, however? For example, in a system with charges moving with different velocities, there would be no single frame for which all charges are stationary.
