If two wires stand one along the other there is no force between them (except a very weak gravitational force). However if the 'sea' of electrons begins to move with an averge velocity v there will be a more powerful magnetic force. My question is what happens in the refference frame of one who moves along the wires with speed v (so that relative velocity to the electron gas would be nil)? I know that somehow special theory of relativity deals with this, but i can't figure out how.
