Abstract

In this paper, an empirical correlation among electromagnetic (EM) impulse-momentum experiments performed by Brito (1999, 2003, 2004, and 2005), Woodward (2004a, 2004b, 2005, and 2006) and March (2006) is developed. This empirical correlation assumes that the dielectric medium exhibits non-linear magnetoelectric effects arising from the interplay of piezo-magnetism and piezo-electricity (Rado, 1975). The modification to the generally accepted electromagnetic field (volume) momentum equation (Jackson, 1999) is derived from Fiegel's (2004) thesis that inside a magnetoelectric, the momenta of counter-propagating vacuum modes do not eliminate each other, in contrast to the other materials. Whereby, a time independent vacuum mode component can be subtracted from the impulse-momentum to give a constant force. This vacuum mode component is interpreted as the nonlinearity of the dielectric medium with respect to the applied frequency of the input power.
