- Slide 6
- The Dipole Approximation Generally, we will want to derive for a collection of particles with You could just add the s given by the formulae derived previously, but then you would have to keep track of all the t retard (i) and R retard (i) The Dipole Approximation
- Slide 7
- One can treat, however, a system of size L with time scale for changes tau where so differences between t ret (i) within the system are negligible Note: since frequency of radiation Ifthen or This will be true whenever the size of the system is small compared to the wavelength of the radiation.
