Abstract

The growing interest in a thorough revision of the tenets of classical electrodynamics compels us to reconsider the torque-production mechanism presently applied to homopolar machines founded - indistinctively - on Ampere's or Grassmann's basis. Recent crucial experimentation definitely rules out the latter rationale for its physical inconsistency.
