An Analysis of Energy and Charge
Year: 2008 Pages: 5
Keywords: Energy, Charge
It is interesting to compare energy and charge, for the two are sometimes confused. To illustrate this confusion, in quantum mechanics the electron is considered to be a point charge, though this writer does not agree. However, this simple assumption has not only confused those who accept quantum mechanics, but it has also confused others who neglect to recognize that this mistake is part of what is today perceived as science. So it infects even those who find the assumptions and non-objective analysis of quantum mechanics unacceptable.
