Forty years ago I learned how Lorentz force cuts straight flux lines. The one-circle-of-flux version was not in my arsenal correctly until now.

Apparently, Lorentz Force is a more comprehensive law than Ampere's Force Law (which is only wire to wire attraction/repulsion) because Lorentz explains Ampere, plus all angles as equally forceful. The Coulomb plus Einstein's Special Relativity explanation for right angles is not within my grasp, so far, like it was for parallel wires.

Edit: I had a new idea this apparent right angle Lorentz force can be described as the sum of two attraction/repulsion vectors, like two short electric dipoles, interacting.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
