A comparison of some important equations is made in classical, relativistic and an alternative electrodynamics. Motion of an electron, in an electric field, is treated under acceleration or deceleration or circular motion. At low speeds, relativistic and the alternative electrodynamics converge to classical electrodynamics. Classical electrodynamics is incompatible with relativistic and the alternative electrodynamics at high speeds near that of light. Relativistic and the alternative electrodynamics show agreement for accelerated electrons, but there is divergence for decelerated electrons. Considering aberration of electric field, equations of motion of the alternative electrodynamics are derived for all charged particles moving up to the speed of light, with constant mass and emission of radiation. Revolution of an electron, round a central force of attraction, is shown to be stable outside quantum mechanics.
