time, energy and force!


Recommended Posts

okay just a little idea me and a few class mates where talking about. Sort of goes like this: if you have two parallel charged plates and you pass an electron between them that electron is accelerated. The thing is though where does the energy for this acceleration come from. The plates remain charged so no energy loss there.


what has this got to do with time? well, it's known that time slows down within a gravitaional field. Could it not be this slow down that causes things to accelerate in the pressence of this force. The energy remains constant but because time has slowed


accleration is the result. If this is the case does it not mean that the same could be true for electrons with in an electric field!


well that's the idea what you all think? thanks all.
