Bremsstrahlung Car

10 bremsstrahlung car

A charged body undergoing acceleration (speed up, slow down, or change direction) must lose energy by emitting electromagnetic radiation. This is called the Bremsstrahlung radiation, which is the underlying cause for the background X-ray radiation.

In this comic, the car moving in a zig-zag manner is fined for accelerating, losing eV in the process. Haha.
