An apparent violation of the second law of thermodynamics, involving a dc motor, was recently described (ibid., vol 54, pp. l200-1201, September 1966). Here we present a new paradox, involving a repulsion motor, rather than a dc motor. There solution of this new paradox will not bea s simple, because a nonzero torque is predicted even though the principle of equipartition is satisfied.
