Quantity equations, rationalization and change of number of fundamental quantities III

In this article the results obtained in preceding papers are extended to the study of the effect of a change of the number of basic quantities in the field of electromagnetism. The different forms of Coulomb's law and of the expression for the force between parallel currents are tabulated (tables G and H, § 9). In a separate section the points are stipulated in which the consequences of the concept of “concrete” quantities and the “abstract quantity calculus” diverge.
