Enjoying the marvels of modern electronics, computers, mobiles etc. most people assume that by now science surely must know everything about electricity. At a closer examination however, it becomes clear that this is not true, and there are inconsistencies and contradiction in the official science of electromagnetics and physics in general even today.
Here is one such inconsistency in the science of electrostatics I have discovered:
Inconsistencies in EM Theory - the Kelvin Polarization Force Density Contradiction
Calculations of resultant electrostatic force on a charged spherical or cylindrical capacitor with two sectors of different dielectrics, based on the classical formulas of electrostatic pressure, Kelvin polarization force density, and Maxwell stress tensor predict a reactionless force that violates Newton’s 3rd law. Measurements didn’t confirm the existence of such a reactionless thrust, thus there is an apparent inconsistency in the classical EM theory that leads to wrong results.
If you are familiar with electrostatics or know someone who is, looking forward to your comments.
