Orbits of charged bodies

  • D. K. Sarvajna


An investigation into the possibility that material drawn out of a star goes into orbit around that star if electromagnetic effects are included, has been made. It is found that if the body has an initial charge of some 1037 e.s.u., and decreasing with time then sufficient angular momentum can be transferred to make orbits not intersecting the stellar surface possible.
