Storage of Kinetic Energy as an EM field
By: Thomas Lee Abshier, ND

Example 1: The storage of energy in moving charges as an EM field: (momentum)

o A charge moving with constant velocity produces a magnetic field.  The magnetic field is created because the moving charge creates a change in the E field in a space at each moment.  The Grid Points in the space automatically create a B field in response to the changing E field.  

o The dE/dt and dB/dt associated with the movement of the charge are the energy equivalents of Kinetic energy.

o The dE/dt and dB/dt at the leading edge of the charged particle constitute the energy storage associated with the momentum of the mass.  In the energy-storage volume, the volume forward of the particle’s center, the dE/dt is increasing.  In that space, each moment, the magnetic field is being generated in response to the dE/dt.  That dE/dt is   ***

o In the “energy-depleting” phase, the volume behind the particle centerline, the opposite phenomenon is taking place.  In this volume the dE/dt is declining, causing a collapse of the magnetic field.  The collapsing dB/dt produces a forward propagating force according to Lenz’s law.  

o The force of the collapsing magnetic field moves the particle forward another increment, which drives energy into the “storage phase” in front of the electron.

o The acceleration of the charge generated the fields held in the “energy storage volume”.  If that mass/charge is allowed to continue to move in the direction of its velocity without being disturbed/decelerated, then the energy stored in the space around the charge/mass will remain stable.

§ What happens to the E & B field at distances far from the source?  

§ Any interaction with another charged particle, at any distance will have an effect on the target particle.  

§ The question is what effect will that interaction have on the amount of energy stored with the original constant-velocity particle?

§ The answer is that the field the target particle is emitting will change because of its interaction with the source.  As a result, the field emitted by the target particle will eventually affect the source particle, causing it to speed, slow, and/or turn.

§ Another question is about the amount of energy that is stored in space because the particle is now moving.  The E&B field is now radiating away from the source, does the amount of energy stored in space keep increasing as it gets farther and farther away?

§ The answer is no.  The leading edge hemispheric volume will be accumulating energy in its volume during acceleration.  That energy will be depleted at the same rate as its creation by the collapsing B field in the trailing edge volume.  A steady state radiation out, and absorption of energy back in, will establish itself at the instant the accelerating force ceases.

Example 2: Conversion of Kinetic Energy in a Moving Charge to EM Radiation

o Electrical power is generated from any source, e.g. chemical, nuclear, solar, etc.   E fields are generated by driving turbines, to turn generators, with hot steam generated by burning fossil fuels (coal, oil, propane…), burning plant matter (wood, ethanol…), uranium fission, trapping solar energy, extracting heat from geothermal water, human effort (driven by plant matter, glucose converted to ATP, which drives muscle contraction, and results in external work), etc.  

o Electrical field potential is produced by any method which separates charge.  Charge may be separated in the following ways to produce an E field:

§ Molecules composed of atoms with different electronegativity will hold electrons tighter or looser.  The atoms on a molecule where electrons are held tightly will appear to be more negatively charged compared to regions which are loosely attracting their electrons.

§ A field is formed between two metals of different electronegativity.  This field can be turned into electron flow when the two metals are immersed in an electrolyte (a solution with dissolved positive and negative ions), and a wire connected between the terminals.

§ When an electron is stripped from its atom, such as by friction (rubbing fur on an amber rod), the hair will stand up when brought next to the amber rod.  

§ When a gamma ray splits the DP Sea and form an electron and positron, the separation of this charge creates an E field.

§ When an E field  Negative DPs from Positive DPs.

§ A photoelectric cell generates an E field by absorbing the energy of photons that strike the loosely bound electrons of semiconductors, giving them enough energy to escape the bonding of their associated atoms.  These unbonded electrons create a voltage potential due to this excess of electrons.
