Attraction of Two Wires with Current

Relative Movement of Parallel Conductors

Thus, the magnetic fields produced by all the charges in the frame will be present all the time.  The result will be that like charges will be contracted by their magnetic attraction, but stopped in their contraction by the repulsion of their like electrical charges.  Likewise, the their  and expanded/repelled by the movement of opposite charges.  the magnetic field produced by the attraction between two DP’s produces an appropriately directed magnetic vector curl around velocity vector of the DP under consideration.

The frame of measurement is commonly called the Laboratory Frame, and typically is inertial (constant velocity, not accelerating).  The measurement of the magnetic field is done via placing a test pole in the space surrounding the moving charge.  (Note: the test magnetic pole is optimally a Dipole Particle.  But, using a DP as a test pole in the laboratory for measurement purposes is currently impossible.  Nevertheless, the concept of using a DP as a test pole serves the purpose of illustrating the point about relative motion between the moving charge and the detection of a magnetic field in the space surrounding the moving charge.)  If there is no relative motion between the test pole and the moving charge, there will be no B Field.  Both of them will generate an absolute B field, and they will both be moved toward each other if they are of the same polarity, but their motion will be stopped by the repulsion of like charges.
