Magnetic Field

Expansion

A magnetic field is a vector field that describes the magnetic influence of electrical currents and magnetized materials. Magnetic fields are produced by moving electric charges and the intrinsic magnetic moments of particles associated with a fundamental quantum property, their spin. Magnetic fields and electric fields are interrelated, and are both components of the electromagnetic force, one of the four fundamental forces of nature.
