Electromagnetism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1190 words)
Electromagnetism is the physics of the electromagnetic field: a field, encompassing all of space, which exerts a force on those particles that possess the property of electric charge, and is in turn affected by the presence and motion of such particles.
An accurate theory of electromagnetism , known as classical electromagnetism , was developed by various physicists over the course of the 19th century, culminating in the work of James Clerk Maxwell, who unified the preceding developments into a single theory and discovered the electromagnetic nature of light.
In classical electromagnetism , the electromagnetic field obeys a set of equations known as Maxwell's equations, and the electromagnetic force is given by the Lorentz force law.

Electromagnetism - definition of Electromagnetism in Encyclopedia (741 words)
Electromagnetism is the physics of the electromagnetic field: a field, encompassing all of space, composed of the electric field and the magnetic field.
The term "electromagnetism" comes from the fact that the electric and magnetic fields are closely intertwined, and, under many circumstances, it is impossible to consider the two separately.
For instance, a changing magnetic field gives rise to an electric field ; this is the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction, which underlies the operation of electrical generators, induction motors, and transformers.
