#### Title

The new Gaussian equation for the force between current elements

#### Publication Date

2002

#### Document Type

Article

#### Abstract

In this paper an equation for the force between current elements is derived from the new Gaussian equation for the force between moving charges. The new equation is compared with the equations previously derived from the Weber equation and from the classical equation for the force between moving charges.
