Main Question or Discussion Point
Hey all. Just a quick question. Would high speed positive ions in a vacuum create a magnetic field that would attract other positively charged particles? If so, why is that? I understand that moving charges creat magnetic fields, but I thought that in the absence of a conductor or opposite charges the field would be...different. I was thinking it had something to do with the explanation of magnetism by relativity and how the electric field is warped at high speeds. As I see it no matter what you do you would only increase the repulsion by warping the electric field. Am I misunderstanding anything?
