Homework Help: Relationship between magnetism and electricity

  1. Mar 23, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Show the mathematical relationship between magnetism and electricity by looking at constants

    2. Relevant equations
    I have several equations but in don´t really know which one I have to use and I don´t see any big similarities except that there is force, charge, velocity and distance involved. I have no idea what I have to do.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I tried to play a little bit with Coulomb's Law and the equation F=BIL and F=Bvq but I don´t know that that´s what he wants the realtionship for.

    Since you guys probably know what my teacher wants, maybe you could give me some help to start. I don't know where I have to find a relationship. Do I have to look at the field-equetions and the force or maybe B or E?

    I'm not really sure what your teacher wants, but the question does say to look at constants, not necessarily equations.

    So what physical constants come up in electricity and magnetism, in the various equations?
