We present the results for the electric and magnetic fields due to linear and circular current distributions according to Weber's theory. We show how the electric field predicted by Weber's law is compatible with the anomalous diffusion in plasmas. Finally, we discuss some modem experiments related to this topic and compare the results of these experiments with a prediction based on Weber's law.
