Part I of this three-part article discussed how absurdities are built into theories of electrodynamics by ignoring longitudinal forces between current elements. These forces were first postulated by Andre-Marie Ampere, and have since been demonstrated in the lab. Part II described Neal Graneau?s demonstration of Ampere?s law through the introduction of spark gap asymmetries to the classical Robson and Sethian experiment. In the third and final part of this article, an experiment is described wherein a tuned electric current, applied perpendicularly across the tines of a tuning fork, exerts longitudinal forces that cause the fork to resonate.
