This paper describes a method to determine mutual forces acting between dielectric particles, which form chains. The Maxwell stress tensor method together with finite element method are used. It is shown that particles placed in inhomogeneous field, because of dielectrophoretic forces acting between them, have a tendency to collect one by one giving in effect even long particles chains. In this article, Maxwell stress tensors are integrated over particle surfaces to give total mutual forces interacting between molecules.
