Different Paths to Some Fundamental Physical Laws: Relativistic Polarization of a Moving Magnetic Dipole
Kholmetskii, Alexander L.; Yarman, T.
European Journal of Physics, v31 n5 p1233-1238 Sep 2010
In this paper we consider the relativistic polarization of a moving magnetic dipole and show that this effect can be understood via the relativistic generalization of Kirchhoff's first law to a moving closed circuit with a steady current. This approach allows us to better understand the law of relativistic transformation of four-current density when it is applied to the moving macroscopic magnetic dipoles. (Contains 1 figure.)
