Abstract:

The Kelvins formula of resultant force acting on polarizable solid is one of the key instruments in modeling various electromagnetic phenomena. One of the conceptual difficulties rendering the Kelvins formula was formulated as the Kelvins formula paradox. Recently, one more attempt of justifying the K-paradox has been published that creates the impression that the K-paradox is wrong. This technical note presents evidence that this impression is incorrect and is based on a misunderstanding of the Kelvins formula paradox.
