On discussions concerning the problem of ponderomotive forces

A discussion is presented in this note from the point of view of modern concepts of the reasons for some controversies which occurred in the past concerning some problems involving ponderomotive forces. In particular it is pointed out that the reason for the different expressions for the force consists of the nonuniqueness of the separation into components of the total force acting on a body situated in an electromagnetic field.
