Self-torque on a dual charged dumbbell
- 36 Downloads
We analyze some features of the electrodynamics of dual charges and we derive an expression for the self-torque in a simple model of extended dual charge, taking into account, consistently, the retarded condition we compare our results with those obtained for electric or magnetic charges only. The behaviour of a dual charge distribution is radically different from the behaviour of a purely electric or magnetic one.
