Unfortunately, your method is severely flawed. There was a long thread
on the the interconverability of electrostatic coulombs and EM coulombs
this last year. The original experimental method proposing to connect
the two is severely lacking. R. Hull has written elegant posts in this
regard. You may refer to the archives or perhaps Richard may choose to
comment on this old information.
