Clausius’ Virial vs. Total Potential Energy in the dynamics of a two-component system

Abstract

In a gravitational virialized bound system built up of two components, one of which is embedded in the other, the Clausius’ virial energy of one subcomponent is not, in general, equal to its total potential energy, as occurs in a single system without external forces. This is the main reason for the presence, in the case of two non-coinciding concentric… (More)
