ABSTRACT
Comments on the letter by Graneau and Graneau which claims that explosions caused an electric arc through saltwater can be explained by longitudinal Ampere forces and not be Lorenz forces or by thermal expansion of gases generated in the arc column. Existence of longitudinal forces in solid and liquid conductors; Hillas' demonstration of how the effects seen in the solid and liquid systems described by Graneau could be explained by the Lorentz forces.

    The behavior of an electric arc in a magnetic field is studied theoretically and experimentally. It is found that the arc behavior can be governed by the ponderomotive interaction of the arc with current-carrying elements. In a nonuniform magnetic field, the behavior of the arc depends on the...
