Relativity and Time-Independent Magnetic Field

Assume that, in S, there is a constant magnetic field and no electric field. Show that E' = V cross B' in S'. Note the prime on the right hand side. So E' is perpendicular to V and B'.

Solution Summary

The solution shows the stepwise derivation of E' = V cross B' in S' using the transformation rules for fields in S'. All workings are shown in a clear manner.
