Electromagnetic Momentum, Angular Momentum, Force and Torque

- Pp. 290-313 (24)

Masud Mansuripur


Electromagnetic fields are capable of exerting force and torque on material media. This is the mechanism by which linear and angular momenta are exchanged between the fields and the media. The fundamental principles that govern such exchanges were described in some detail in Chapter 2. The present chapter provides several examples that demonstrate the application of these principles in certain situations of practical interest.
