Would this imply that the wave is dependent upon the presence of gravity?
would the wavelength tend to infinite at infinity
In the limit, a photon released right at the event horizon will be red-shifted to infinity by the time it reaches 1000km altitude….
As gravity tends to redshift wavelengths would the wavelength tend to infinite at infinity. Would this imply that the wave is dependent upon the presence of gravity.
what does being “red-shifted to infinity” actually mean?
So I guess you could say we have not yet succeeded in measuring a redshift "approaching infinity"
If a wave function flatlines then it is infinite.
Quote from: Jeffrey If a wave function flatlines then it is infinite. How does that differ from not being a wave?
However if we slow its spin rate to 1 nano metre a year and move it at the same rate horizontally we will trace out what we perceive to be a straight line.
If it's flat, there's no wave
However, there is a difference at the transmitter end - in one case the transmitter is losing power as radiation, while in the constant case, the transmitter is not radiating any power.
Fair enough, but at the transmitter end, has the wave flat-lined?
Most of us would say the transmitter has stopped transmitting.
