In "Classical Theory of Fields", by Landau & Lifgarbagez, they give, for example, the force on a charged particle by a magnetic field as:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F = [itex]\frac{ev}{c}[/itex]xH

where H is the magnetic field intensity. Now, normally written in SI units, this expression would use B and no factor of 1/c.

So how are B and H related here? I'm a bit confused over the units in use (which I think may be Gaussian)!
