Were I to accelerate a proton......radiation would surely be emitted. But were I to accelerate a neutraly charged hydrogen atom: does that emit radiation? And if so, why? Although local charges within the atom underwent acceleration, the net charge that underwent acceleration was zero....and does it matter if charges undergoe a symetrical attraction and collapse? Is that posssible? Would the resultant waves not be detectable as in the gravitational analouge?
