revised Differences between the gravitational constants $G$ and $g$?
Changed the way the units were written for $g$. This reason I did this is because when it is written as $\frac{m}{s^2}$ I initially thought the $m$ here corresponded to 'mass' (not metres), given that $m$ in all other contexts here is mass. This way of writing it is more concise and less confusing.

comment Does the Relativity Principle of Special Relativity imply homogeneity and isotropy of all the reference frames?
@Muphrid isotropy of spacetime is not the isotropy used in GR discussions. Isotropy used in GR is that of the 3d hypersurface which is analogous to the constant time snapshot of the universe in newtonian approaches. This is well defined in all the texts of GR, including Gravitation referenced above.

comment Why do we calculate energy by integrate the Signal squared?
Basically we are showing that power and energy are proportional to a conserved current which is measure the flow of conserved quantity (charge) over time. Another way to conceptualize it is to think in terms of accounting. If I have a budget and I use a double entry accounting process, debits and credits should sum to zero. So money in this system is the conserved charge. It flows through different accounts over time. Some things I use my money for give me greater marginal utility, analogous to voltage, making Utility analogous to power.

comment Why do we calculate energy by integrate the Signal squared?
Voltage is potential, current is the flow of charge. Power is simply energy per unit time. Charges are generators of a continuous symmetry via Noether's theorem and exist whenever there is a conserved current, e.g. the derivatives of the current in any direction sum to zero. P=VI is a statement about the proportionality of current to power. Although voltage can take a constant value, it can also vary as a function independent of the current. cont below.

@Slereah If you are talking about virtual particles you are talking QFT.
