The interaction between a charge and its electric field are analyzed in different situatuations. It is found that whether the charge is accelerated and its electric field lags behind, or in the case where the charge is static and its electric field falls in a gravitational field - in both cases the electric field curves, a stress force is created that acts as a reaction force, and radiation is created.
