 Mar4 comment Is there a limit to acceleration? Afaik, there is no slogan about maximal acceleration. You could cook up a Planckian acceleration $c^{3.5}/(\hbar G)^{0.5}\approx 2.2\,10^{51}m^2/s$, but I don't see the use for that here. Seems the latter must ask for r'' vs. W. We should maybe make it a little more concrete. Consider a particle at rest with $r_1=0$ at some time and set up a potential $V(|r_1-r_2|)$ with another particle. You can consider a) a free collision (where total momentum is constant) and compute $r_1''(t)$. b) try to compute the energy cost it takes to move the second particle in some way to push the other one.

Feb26 comment Why do we use $\psi$ instead of a straightforward probability? This thread should answer the question. Feb25 comment Quantum frequency vs classical frequency and Energy dependence From the point of view that a QFT starts by setting up the states and the Hamiltonian $H\sim \nu\ a^Ta$, the QED energy is given like this and is responsible for both of course $\nu$'s. I.e. $\langle H\rangle\propto \nu$ and "$\mathrm{e}^{-itH}\sim>\sin{(t\nu)}$".

Feb23 comment Why is introductory physics not taught in a more “axiomatic” way? @TerryBollinger: Uncomfortable similarities? Stop worrying and learn to love the bomb. ;) Feb20 comment What is the difference between translation and rotation? That's vague. Can you give an example for a situation where "a rotation motion corresponds to a force acting on a body towards a direction perpendicular to its velocity." and where you can make precise what the "velocity", acting "force" and "rotation" is? Feb19 comment Does the 1-D poisson's equation have monotonic potentials if $\rho=\rho(\phi(z))$? @Anode: "It's no surprise that $\phi(z)=0$ in your example." What do you mean by that? The solution is $\phi(z)=a·z+b$ and these are valid for all $a,b$. The conclusion you should draw isn't that $\phi(z)=0$ follows. Feb19 comment Does the 1-D poisson's equation have monotonic potentials if $\rho=\rho(\phi(z))$? @Anode: So? $\rho(\phi):=0$ fulfills $\rho(\phi=0)=0$. So I'm pointing out that for the trivial case, the concluded relation is already broken. That's a general tool for investigating mathematics: If you're skeptical of a result obtained with free parameters, go back and choose particular examples for those parameters to see at which point in the derivation the system breaks down. Feb19 comment Does the 1-D poisson's equation have monotonic potentials if $\rho=\rho(\phi(z))$? For $\rho(\phi):=0$ the solution is $\phi(z)=a·z+b$ and the equation reads $0=0$. You say you "integrate up" and end up with $\frac{1}{2}a^2=0$. Magic. Feb15 revised Any examples of commensurable subgroups appearing in physics? How can our set comprehensions be real if our formulas aren't real? Feb15 suggested suggested edit on Any examples of commensurable subgroups appearing in physics? Feb11 comment What is the relation between General Relativity and Newtonian Mechanics? I know what you want to say in your first sentence, but what you write isn't information one can work with. And going further, it's not clear what "case ... can be proven means", but you are implying that at least any result obtained in Newtonian spacetime agrees with the corresponding one in general relativity. But that's not true and it's not clear in what sense you'd "arrive" at Newtonian equations.
