electromagnetism

 [e-lek″tro-mag´nĕ-tizm]
magnetism developed by an electric current.

electromagnetism

(ē-lĕk″trō-măg′nĕ-tĭzm)
Magnetism produced by an electric current.

electromagnetism (i·lekˈ·trō·magˑ·n·ti·zm),

n one of nature's four forces; the electromagnetic force is pervasive, effectual at subatomic distances (the arena where weak and strong nuclear forces are of exceptionally short range) and at astronomical distances (the arena where gravitational forces are significant).

In such a theory, gravity and electromagnetism would appear as differing aspects of some single, underlying phenomenon.
The results we obtain are thus consistent with the macroscopic theory of Electromagnetism, with no contradictions.
Physicists today are still chasing after the same dream of unification which Einstein and many others after him couldn't complete: unifying electromagnetism and gravity with the two remaining forces of nature which manifest themselves inside atomic nuclei: fairly creatively called the strong and weak nuclear forces.
Nobody in the 19th century realized that James Clerk Maxwell's electromagnetism equations eventually would produce television.
But there was good reason for the clandestine measures: By late 1943, Oak Ridge's Y-12 plant was using electromagnetism to create the highly enriched uranium that would be used in the "Little Boy" atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, helping to bring the war to an end.
Burkhard Heim said it was possible to create a multidimensional world in which the forces of gravity and electromagnetism are fused together.
I find magnetism, or electromagnetism, contextually compelling as the 'invisible' or immaterial basis of computer technology and of every kind of information recording and transfer.
It explains how these "real magic" results are achieved based on principles of quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, physics and electromagnetism In Some Science Adventures with Real Magic, Tiller and his co-authors attempt to bridge the gap between mainstream science and the frontiers of knowledge about healing and the nature of reality in which it is entrenched.
His future dreams include exploring the field of electromagnetism - a nontraditional career, but typical for the students at Bowman, who eschew the typical high school student mold.
Gravity, electromagnetism and light show 'the laws of nature' and all living nature--that is numbers 1, 2 and 3--derive from, and are dependent on, these more basic laws, their constants and materiality.
He looked to the example of Michael Faraday, who not only shaped our understanding of electromagnetism, but was also a landscape painter and heavily involved with London's arts world.
Electromagnetism may be the means by which this limitation is overcome.
