The basic equations of electromagnetism, as currently accepted, are not completely true. The equations do not contain terms for the speed of charge carriers. If the electric field has its own velocity identical to the moving charges that produce the corresponding magnetic field, then formulas for the magnetic field must contain terms for the velocity of the charges. It is shown that complete equations for electrodynamics must include terms for the drift velocity of charges.
