The forces on individual electrons in an unscreened nondegenerate electron fluid, due to electron density fluctuations, have been calculated using Monte Carlo, simulations and determined experimentally over a broad range of the plasma parameter Γ. The experimental results are obtained from the magnetoconductivity σ(B) measured for electrons on liquid helium below 1 K for B ≤ 8 T. The magnitude and density dependence of σ(B) are explained by the many-electron theory of magnetotransport. The internal electric fields found from the experiments are in excellent agreement with the simulations.
