Both superluminal velocities and superconductivity are shown to devolve naturally from the generalized equations of motion identified in an earlier paper1. The behavior of "mass" as it approaches and exceeds light speed under uniform acceleration is illustrated and the statistical anomaly of barrier potential tunnelling is resolved. A significant difference between the angular and linear velocities involved in orbital motion is identified. Introduction: Sufficient experimental evidence exists for superluminal velocities although such is not accepted by the scientific community. This is primarily due to the assumed limitations on light speed imposed by special relativity and classical electrodynamics as well as the lack of a sound theoretical basis for exceeding it. Conversely, superconductivity is a well-established and recognized phenomenon but it also suffers from the absence of a comprehensive theory. In the following, it is shown they are both readily explained by one theory and identified as the extreme positions of kinetic and potential energies.
