Looks like it

It surely then must follow that action-reaction is always going to hold true.
I looked at Eric Dollardís piece on capacitors (when I was a lad they were
called condensers) and I donít really understand what dielectric lines of force
are. Can you point me to an authoritative link to same?
Iím quite happy with science as it is,so much of the stuff we use these days
has got its roots in the basic principles and it all seems to work so well.
Of course thereís a whole heap more to be discovered, just a pity I wonít
be around to see it.
Hi John,

I haven't been able to study either document near as much as I intend. What I've read and see so far, neither negate conventional theory. In fact, Eric talks about iron filings and the magnetic lines of force. I've not studied Eric's stuff much, but I gather he is his own authority.

A lot of talk here on this forum about dielectric fields. To me, a dielectric is an electric insulator which can be polarized by an electric field. Electric fields or electric lines of force can arrange light wheat shaft along those lines. Lines of force in electric or magnetic fields just help us visualize that which is invisible yet interacts with charges, materials and other fields.

Just my opinions.
