Force Law Transforms

  1. Feb 5, 2010 #1
    The Lorentz force transformation (or the transformation of d(mv)/dt) is well known. Should all force laws (Hooke, Lorentz, etc.) transform like F? If so, what does this suggest about the Spring Constant in Hooke's Law?

    Many thanks. I have printed out the two papers and will study them at length.
