We study, in this paper, how the inertial field acts in the process of creating an electron and a positron through photon annihilation. Initially, the inertial potential energy is added to the term of kinetic energy. Then the one‐dimensional de Broglie plane wave for free electrons is chosen as the wave‐function and used as a solution of the Schrödinger time‐dependent equation. From this the creation field and, by virtue of its conservation property, the creation force Fcr are deduced.
