There are a lot of different branches to physics, one of those branches is electromagnetism. Electromagnetism is the interaction between electric currents and magnetic fields or simply just the connection of electricity and magnetism. Electromagnetism was discovered in 1820 by a scientist named Hans Christian Oersted. Oersted was holding a compass near a magnet and he realized that the needle in the compass was not pointing north then later did more research and he discovered electromagnetism. One of the most helpful pieces of research on electromagnetism was done by James Clerk Maxwell, Maxwell had published the Maxwell Equations which were equations on how to solve electromagnetism. Electromagnetism is a type of physics, physics is any science that involves matter, energy, science, or force. Mechanics is a another branch if physics that deals with motion, forces, and statistics and kinetics. There are a lot of different points and parts to electromagnetism. A lot of people …show more content…

In this essay, the author

  • Explains that electromagnetism is the interaction between electric currents and magnetic fields. it was discovered in 1820 by hans christian oersted and james clerk maxwell.
  • Explains that electromagnetism is a type of physics that involves matter, energy, science, or force. mechanics deals with motion, forces, statistics, and kinetics.
  • Explains that ultraviolet rays are electromagnetic waves that are shorter than the average wave. gravity occurs in space which is a never-ending 3d dimension where everything is located.
  • Explains that electromagnetism is made of waves - magnetic waves can be bent, and when they are it's called diffraction. there are different types of magnets, including regular, electro, or dielectric.
  • Explains that there were quantum theories made during the discovery of electromagnetism.
  • Explains the discovery of electromagnetism by hans christian oersted in 1820. james clerk maxwell's equations on how to solve electromagnetic fields were helpful.
  • Explains hans christian oersted was the first person to discover the connection between electricity and magnetism in 1820.
  • Describes how a french scientist named andré -marie ampère found out about oersted's research and started doing research of her own. they were the first two people to conduct research on electromagnetism.

But the waves can go in a specific speed in a certain direction and that specific speed is called the velocity. There are two parts to electromagnetism magnetism and electricity magnetism is made of waves - magnetic waves - those waves can be bent any waves can actually and when they are it’s called diffraction. Now a solenoid is needed when electromagnet is weak or when the magnetic field is too large or is weak, a magnetic field is an area around a magnet with an electric charge running through, a solenoid is a magnet-like coil with an electric current running through it. There are different types of magnets regular magnets, electromagnets, or dielectric magnet. A There are a lot of different branches to physics, one of those branches is electromagnetism. Electromagnetism is the interaction (Sander, What is Electromagnetism) between electric currents and magnetic fields or simply just the connection of electricity and
