Please assume that you have a rectangular coil (its plane is horizontal) and you put pairs of Helmholtz coils on its sides (4 pairs) with their plane vertical. Also, all coils are mounted on a chassis. Now if we assume that we can feed this system with enough power, could we say that the Lorentz force that is exerted on the rectangular coil (caused by the Helmholtz coils magnetic field) can be used for propulsion? Does action-reaction prevent this from moving? I have resend this question but I received no answer. I know that you have tons of questions to process but please let me know if there is a problem with my question. Thank you!
