The growing interest in a thorough revision of the tenets of classical electrodynamics compels the physics community to reconsider the dominating magnetic field rationale applied to electrodynamics since the time of Lorentz. The torque-production mechanism presently attributed to homopolar machines, which is based on Grassmann's force, has been definitively ruled out by recent crucial experimentation. Conversely, Ampere's force law, restating the Newtonian symmetry requirement for energy conversion, fully explains homopolar torque production.
