Andre Ampere experimentally determined in 1822 a law that describes the force of interaction between two current elements. This paper theoretically derives this law from Special Relativity Theory (SRT). Also, the derivation shows the correct law for force of interaction between two relatively moving isolated charges. In addition, the derivation shows there is a force between a stationary charge and a current element.
