PHY2061 R. D. Field Department of Physics relativity_22.doc University of Florida Force Between Two Moving Charged Particles Consider the force on q moving with velocity v due to Q moving with velocity V . The moving charge Q produces both an electric and magnetic field given by E V c B r r KQ E × = = 2 2 / 3 2 2 2 2 1 ˆ ) sin 1 ( ) 1 ( θ β where β = V/c, which produce a force on q given by B v q E q F × + = and thus ) ˆ ( ) sin 1 ( ) 1 ( ˆ ) sin 1 ( ) 1 ( 2 / 3 2 2 2 2 2 2 / 3 2 2 2 2 r V v r c KqQ r r KqQ F × × + = Classical Result: If is assume that v << c and V << c then we arrive at
