However, since the SRT is widely recognized, a check to what extent that would change the results above seems very urgent to perform. That is also one of the main concerns of this paper. And the result is that the SRT does not affect the results, as far as low charge velocities are involved, as is the case with circuit currents. The effects of propagation delay are of higher order and supersede those of the SRT.

Since efforts have been made by other scientists to explain the results with Ampere?s bridge, thereby using Ampere?s law, this theory will be discussed further here. A model claiming that Ampere?s law is a direct consequence of applying the special relativity theory straightforwardly upon Coulomb?s law will also be analysed, but with negative result. What Ampere derived through deduction with respect to experimental results remains empirical. The Lorentz force is again unable to explain the measurement results, even though the invariance of Maxwell?s equations during Lorentz transformations according to the predominant school supports that claim that Maxwell?s equations also are consistent with reality.
