Angular momentum in electric field and magnetic field

  1. Jan 30, 2009 #1
    I am just wondering why there are no references and articles talking about the conservation of angular momentum in electric field and/or magnetic field! does any body has any thing to help me because am a phd student and looking for that subject for my research.
    thank all

    What have you been looking for? It kind of sounds like you are asking about the energy density, Poynting vector, and stress energy tensor relationships.

    Erm... angular momentum is not generally conserved in an electric field.

    There are plenty of articles...
    As Peeter implied, its is quite a broad subject.

    It appears from your other posts you are doing a Jackson problem to 'prove AM conservation in Electric field'.
