The fundamental electromagnetic Lorentz equation is shown to have its well‐known form (which I call the absolute Newton‐Lorentz equation) only if the chosen reference frame rests in absolute space. If the chosen reference frame moves in absolute space, this equation has a different form, which I call the relative Newton‐Lorentz equation. Recent experiments have confirmed the validity of the relative Newton‐Lorentz equation.
