Newton?s Third Principle in Post-Newtonian Physics - Part I: Theory
This paper reviews the application of Newton's third principle in all branches of Physics. Until now, there has been no experimental evidence showing that Newton's third principle has ever been violated. However, in special relativity theory this principle is violated, because the Lorentz force does not follow Newton's third principle. The violation of this principle implies consequences that can be tested experimentally; these will be discussed in Part II, Interpretation and Experiment.
