Abstract

In a recent paper, we questioned the validity of the Lorentz law of force in the presence of material media that contain electric and/or magnetic dipoles. A number of authors have criticized our methods and conclusions. This paper is an attempt at answering the critics and elaborating the relevant issues in some detail.
