DrRocket Posted June 8, 2011 Share Posted June 8, 2011 (edited) Dr.Rocket , this is a question , I don't claim to be advanced to any level I am seeing being discussed . You say voltage is not force . Why then is electro motive force measured in volts . "electromotive force" is somewhat unfortunate terminology. It is not a force. It is a line integral of the E-field. The units of the E-field are volts/meter which when integrated over a path (distance) yields volts. Force on a charged particle comes from the Lorentz force equation: F=q(E + v X B) Edited June 8, 2011 by DrRocket 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
