Electromagnetic Force and Field by Mind Map: Electromagnetic Force and Field

1. is a special force that affects everything in the universe because (like gravity) it has an infinite range. It has the ability to attract and repel charges.

2. can be generated by three types of fields known as the electrostatic field, magnetostatic field, and the electromagnetic field.

3. The combination of electric and magnetic forces on a charged object is known as the Lorentz force.

4. F = q(E + v × B)

5. Electromagnetic Field is a property of space caused by the motion of an electric charge.

6. The mutual interaction of electric and magnetic fields produces an electromagnetic field, which is considered as having its own existence in space apart from the charges or currents (a stream of moving charges) with which it may be related.

7. It can also be described as a wave transporting electromagnetic energy.

8. An electric field will exist even when there is no current flowing. If current does flow, the strength of the magnetic field will vary with power consumption but the electric field strength will be constant.
