How can the signs change with an acceleration? Unruh radiation.

What I really meant was: charged object free falling non-uniformly, while different parts of its electric field being in different gravity fields.

I asked him about it, and he sent me this link Graham :) Black Hole Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics by Steve Carlip. I hope it will make it more understandable for us.

It looks really nice.

The capacitor plates idea is beyond my current understanding (no pun intended). I guess it is not possible to polarise the BH and I would assume then that the dielectric constant of the BH is zero - all the effective field lines from the plates would have to bend around the BH making the capacitance lower than would be the case if the BH wasn't there. I will build one in my garden and measure it :-)


Oh yes, black hole moving slowly through electric field gently pushes the field lines off of its way. Only a small wave is produced.

Black hole does NOT eat a hole in the electric field that it goes through.

They look great - Thanks Yor-On
