electromagnetic

[-magnet′ik]
Etymology: Gk, elektron, Magnesia, ancient source of lodestone
1 pertaining to magnetism that is induced by an electric current.
2 pertaining to radiation such as light, microwaves, x-rays, gamma rays, or radio waves.

electromagnet

(ē-lĕk″trō-măg′nĕt) [″ + magnes, magnet]
A magnet consisting of a length of insulated wire wound around a soft iron core. When an electrical current flows through the wire, a magnet is produced.
electromagnetic, adjective
