THE English translation of the second volume of the valuable work of MM. Mascart and Joubert is a welcome addition to the class, none too large, of really substantial English books on electricity. We have already directed the attention of the readers of NATURE to the first volume of this work; and we took occasion to point out that in their exposition of the subject the authors follow very closely the general methods of Clerk-Maxwell. That they do so is a great advantage for the English student… 

Feynman’s different approach to electromagnetism

We discuss a previously unpublished description of electromagnetism outlined by Richard P Feynman in the 1960s in five handwritten pages, recently uncovered among his papers, and partly developed in

THE FOUNDATIONS OF RELATIVITY

Maxwell’s equations were, and still are, derived for a uniform stationary ether and are not, therefore, the general equations of electromagnetism. The true general equations, for an ether in general

Methods of Calculating Forces on Rigid Magnetic Media

Despite 180 years of theory on magnetism, it appears that the practice of calculating forces on magnetic media is ambiguous, as illustrated by a recent article by Casperson [1]. Potentially troubling

Methods of Calculating Forces on Rigid , Linear Magnetic Media

Despite 180 years of theory on magnetism, it appears that the practice of calculating forces on magnetic media is ambiguous, as illustrated by a recent article by Casperson [1]. Potentially troubling

DEFINITE SOLUTION OF THE TWO CAPACITORS PARADOX

In this work we suggest very simple solution of the two capacitors paradox in the completely ideal (without any electrical resistance or inductivity) electrical circuit. Namely, it is shown that

A Full Review of the Theory of Electromagnetism

We will provide detailed arguments showing that the set of Maxwell equations, and the corresponding wave equations, do not properly describe the evolution of electromagnetic wave-fronts. We propose a

Cause of Claimed Breach of Newton's Third Law in Electromagnetism

It is shown that as Newton’s third law holds in static discussions of Electromagnetism it holds also in dynamic discussions of it, ie where the motion of electric charge in the magnetic field arising

Simple circuits are not that simple

The teaching of basic circuits in early undergraduate physics courses is widespread and, to some extent, quite uniform. In most textbooks, the introduction of resistors, capacitors and inductors is

An Advanced Review of Thermodynamics of Electromagnetism

We present an advanced review of thermodynamics of electromagnetic systems that has effective applications. The review highlights a previously introduced entropy approach that found plausible

Is there a "Charge - Magnet Paradox"

In this paper it is shown that in the approach to special relativity which exclusively deals with the four-dimensional geometric quantities (4D GQs), the invariant special relativity (ISR), there is
