Title: A LIMITATION OF WEBER LAW
Author: ASSIS, AKT
CALUZI, JJ
Abstract: We present Weber's law and its main properties. We discuss its relation with the experiments of mass variation with velocity. Then we calculate the energy and force on a charge moving inside and outside a capacitor according to Weber's electrodynamics. We discuss the consequences of this relation, and in particular we show that in this model a charge could attain velocities larger than the light velocity in a limited space due do a finite and feasible voltage difference. As this has never been observed we conclude that Weber's electrodynamics should not be applied to charges moving near the light velocity.
