WHAT DOES ELECTROMAGNETISM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

electromagnetism

Electromagnetism

Electromagnetism, or the electromagnetic force is one of the four fundamental interactions in nature, the other three being the strong interaction, the weak interaction, and gravitation. This force is described by electromagnetic fields, and has innumerable physical instances including the interaction of electrically charged particles and the interaction of uncharged magnetic force fields with electrical conductors. The word electromagnetism is a compound form of two Greek terms, ἢλεκτρον, ēlektron, "amber", and μαγνήτης, magnetic, from "magnítis líthos", which means "magnesian stone", a type of iron ore. The science of electromagnetic phenomena is defined in terms of the electromagnetic force, sometimes called the Lorentz force, which includes both electricity and magnetism as elements of one phenomenon. During the quark epoch, the electroweak force split into the electromagnetic and weak force. The electromagnetic force plays a major role in determining the internal properties of most objects encountered in daily life. Ordinary matter takes its form as a result of intermolecular forces between individual molecules in matter.

Definition of electromagnetism in the English dictionary

The definition of electromagnetism in the dictionary is magnetism produced by an electric current. Other definition of electromagnetism is Also called: electromagnetics. the branch of physics concerned with magnetism produced by electric currents and with the interaction of electric and magnetic fields.
