Many equations have been derived to describe the force caused by two current elements acting on each other. Only Lorentz? equation is conventionally accepted, but only Ampere?s equation is empirically supported. In this article, Phipps describes in detail his experiment that demonstrates Ampere?s force equation. His results are worthy of careful attention and consideration.
