I have read in several books and also in this site that the Newton's Third Law does not hold true for "Action at a distance". Specifically, in the case of Electrodynamics. Can someone explain to me, what actually happens in the case of electromagnetism? I've read that the action-reaction forces are not collinear that is 'weak form of third law'. What exactly does this mean? Early this year, due to lapse of my brain functioning, I committed a serious mistake of neglecting the third law for my Google Science Fair project. Take a look: https://sites.google.com/site/levitationp2wreduction/ You'll understand how flawed the idea is (and maybe have some pity on my foolishness?) Though, deep inside, I still hope that the third law gets violated so that my idea works.
