We show that if we consider the full statement of Faraday's law for a closed physical circuit, the standard Maxwell's equations in the presence of electric and magnetic charges have to include in their integral form a mixed term of the form , where is the magnetic charge density and the perpendicular component of the velocity ve of the electric charge.
