The magnetic force acts exclusively perpendicular to the direction of motion of a test charge, whereas the electric force does not depend on the velocity of the charge. This article provides experimental evidence that, in addition to these two forces, there is a third electromagnetic force that (i) is proportional to the velocity of the test charge and (ii) acts parallel to the direction of motion rather than perpendicular. This force cannot be explained by the Maxwell equations and the Lorentz…

On limiting velocity with Weber-like potentials
This work analyses the problem of a charge moving perpendicularly to the plates of a charged capacitor. The results obtained from the current theoretical framework (Maxwell–Lorentz electromagnetism
Gravitational induction with Weber's force
According to Faraday’s law of induction, when we change the current intensity in a primary electric circuit we can induce a current in a secondary circuit under appropriate conditions. An electric

Weber electrodynamics, part I. general theory, steady current effects
The original Weber action at a distance theory, valid for slowly varying effects, is extended to time-retarded fields, valid for rapidly varying effects including radiation. A new law for the force
The Planck Constant and the Origin of Mass Due to a Higher Order Casimir Effect
The Planck constant is one of the most important constants in nature, as it describes the world governed by quantum mechanics. However, it cannot be derived from other natural constants. We present a
Evaluation of Electron Beam Deflections across a Solenoid Using Weber-Ritz and Maxwell-Lorentz Electrodynamics
The deflection of charged particle beams by electric and/or magnetic fields is invariably based on the field centred approach associated with Maxwell-Lorentz and incorporated into the Lorentz force
Modelling electromagnetic induction via accelerated electron motion
The two forms of electromagnetic induction are generally referred to as motional and transformer induction, and although these phenomena have been observed and discussed for well over 150 years,
Investigating Electron Beam Deflections by a Long Straight Wire Carrying a Constant Current using Direct Action, Emission-based and Field Theory Approaches of Electrodynamics
Results are presented for the transverse de ection of an electron beam by a long, straight wire carrying direct current. The experimental de ections are compared with three calculation methods based
Electromagnetic Induction from a new Perspective
The well-known historical development of Electromagnetism, strongly influenced by the work of Faraday and Maxwell, has led to the introduction of the magnetic field as an important component to
