Abstract

We respond to a Comment on our paper [Phys. Rev. A 80, 023823 (2009)10.1103/PhysRevA.80.023823], which appears to have stemmed from a misunderstanding of the various energy-momentum tensors of classical electrodynamics. It is shown that each stress tensor, when used in conjunction with the corresponding force-density and momentum-density expressions, yields results that are consistent with Maxwell's equations and with the conservation laws.
