The Electromagnetic Force between Two Moving Charges
Minkin, Leonid; Shapovalov, Alexander S.
Physics Education, v53 n3 Article 035014 May 2018
A simple model of parallel motion of two point charges and the subsequent analysis of the electromagnetic field transformation invariant quantity are considered. It is shown that ignoring the coupling of electric and magnetic fields, as is done in some introductory physics books, can lead to miscalculations of the force between moving charges. Conceptual and computational aspects of these issues are discussed, and implications to the design of electron beam devices are considered.
