Magnetic fields only act on moving charges. From these two statements, we may think of electricity and magnetism in the following way. Electricity is the study of the interaction between static charges. Magnetism is the study of the interaction between moving charges. Both result from the existence of electric charge, and can simply be seen as. 6. The force on a moving charge in the presence of a magnetic field is always Perpendicular to both the charge's velocity and the magnetic field Parallel to the charge's velocity Parallel to the magnetic field None of the above.   Electric fields are produced by electric charges, and magnetic fields are produced by the flow of electrical current through wires or electrical devices. Because of this, low frequency EMR is found in close proximity to electrical sources such as power lines. As current moves through a power line, it creates a magnetic field called an. Line Integrals of Magnetic Fields Recall that while studying electric fields we established that the surface integral through any closed surface in the field was equal to 4Π times the total charge enclosed by the surface. We wish to develop a similar property for magnetic fields. For magnetic fields, however, we do not use a closed surface.

polarizable and conducting media with negligible magnetic field; (2) currents as the source of the magnetic field coupled to magnetizable media with electromagnetic induction generat­ ing an electric field; and (3) electrodynamics where the electric and magnetic fields are of equal importance resulting in radi­ ating waves. The electric field, →, in units of newtons per coulomb or volts per meter, is a vector field that can be defined everywhere, except at the location of point charges (where it diverges to infinity). It is defined as the electrostatic force → in newtons on a hypothetical small test charge at the point due to Coulomb's Law, divided by the magnitude of the charge in coulombs. Given, Amplitude of magnetic field, B0 = nT = × TSpeed of EM wave, C = 3 × m s-1 For electromagnetic waves, C = E0B0 i.e., E0 = C B0 = 3 × × × = NC-1 which is the required amplitude of electric field. concepts among which: field and substance, electric charge, electric current, state quantities of electric and magnetic fields, as well as the study of laws and energy of the electromagnetic field. The general theory is presented in four chapters. Further, three appendices are added.

The magnetic field can actually cause the particle to move in a complete circle. Express the radius of this circle in terms of the charge, mass and velocity of the particle, and the magnitude of the magnetic field. In this case the magnetic field produces the centripetal force required to move the particle in uniform circular motion. the electric field is downwards and of strength E = I / (2 ε 0 v). Since B = μ 0 I / 2, this implies: B = μ 0 ε 0 v E. But we have another equation linking the field strengths of the electric and magnetic fields, Maxwell's third equation: ∮ E → ⋅ d ℓ → = − d / d t (∫ B → ⋅ d A →).   The answer lies in the electric field. Every atom has its own electric field, and when you put two atoms close together, they can mess around with the electric field of the other.
