AbstractThe orbits of a relativistic charged body in a static, spherically symmetric electrical field are calculated and classified in the classical theory. Contrary to the non-relativistic problem, we find that there is a limiting minimal value for the angular momentum, L_c. Should the actual angular momentum of a charged test body be lower than this limit, the test particle will spiral into the central point charge instead of having (preceding) Keplerian orbits.
