Unformatted text preview: Observation: voltage appears across ends of wire! ==> E field must be present! ==> Force on (resting) electrons ==> Effective change in BField generates EField! BUT: no charges to generate EField! Reference frame of moving wire: Lecture Notes Page 2 b) Transformation rule for force density (from classical mechanics) c) Transformation rule for current density : ==> read off transformation rule d) Transformation rule for fields: force density form invariance of force density (continuity equation) constant continuity equation Lecture Notes Page 3 differential form for field transformation: Note: (vector identity#8 Griffith) But in reference frame I (static fields in reference frame I) Summary so far: From the transformation rules we now obtain the connection of E' and B': Lecture Notes Page 4...
