# Electromagnetic inertial reaction force?

I accelerate charged particle $$A$$ causing virtual photons to travel to distant charged particle $$B$$ which feels an electromagnetic force proportional to $$A$$'s acceleration (for a classical field description of this effect see Feynman Lectures vol 1 ch. 28 Eqn 28.6).

Virtual photons conserve momentum and energy between the two charged particles.

Is there an inertia-like reaction force back at particle $$A$$ due to its electromagnetic interaction with particle $$B$$?

• I put charged particle $A$ inside a heavy charged hollow insulator along with some apparatus that produces an EM field local to particle $A$. Will particle $A$ move as though its inertia has been altered due to its interaction with the charged insulator? – John Eastmond Mar 3 at 8:41
