comment Have red shifted photons lost energy and where did it go?
@bobie Asymptotic is asymptotic, regardless of the size. I never didn't accept that energy can be drained out. It can. However, again, the photon started with a net negative "potential energy", so everything evens out.

comment Have red shifted photons lost energy and where did it go?
@bobie It can't be completely drained out until it reaches infinity (or if it is beyond an event horizon). General relativity doesn't have a nice concept of "potential energy", however remember that a gravitational well has negative PE, so throwing an energetic photon up (and having it redshift into oblivion) conserves energy.

comment Green's function for a dielectric with a charge
It needs to ask about a specific concept, too. Showing work is secondary (see the linked policy for mode details)

Note: Chemistry is fine with this question, but so is Physics IMO.

comment An electron has no known internal structure, does that imply it has an unknown one?
From whatever scattering experiments we have done, the electron seems to exhibit no further break down. Spin is a property that doesn't require "spinning" particles. It can just exist as a property of the particle.

comment Which form of the first law of thermodynamics should I use?
Ah, okay. I just used the symbols from the question (otherwise I almost always use $\delta$). I'll edit my answer later today.
