"For me, finding that electromagnetism is constant over more than half the Universe's age just deepens the mystery 6 why is it that way?
The backstory of electromagnetism serves as a reminder that brilliant science in progress is not always recognized while it's in progress, and that prejudices ingrained into scientific orthodoxy (in this case, the universal belief that electric and magnetic forces acted at a distance) can blind science to new insights.
In electromagnetism, the same kind of action-at-a-distance appears to apply, but Maxwell's Equations show that changes at one charge can only be felt at another after a time-delay corresponding to the time it would take light to move between them.
In addition to discussions of atomic theory, these chapters also look at discoveries in electromagnetism and thermodynamics.
* Hybrid Type Circuit Breakers use both electromagnetism as well as heat for protection.
Anapole dark matter makes use of ordinary electromagnetism that you learned about in school - the same force that makes magnets stick to your refrigerator or makes a balloon rubbed on your hair stick to the ceiling," said Scherrer.
In this paper, we derive Electromagnetism from the Elastodynamics of the Spacetime Continuum (STCED).

In the early 1950s, he worked with Albert Einstein on the Unified Field Theory of Gravitation and Electromagnetism.
John Roy Whinnery, 92, retired director of the University of California-Berkeley Electronics Research Laboratory; innovator in electromagnetism and communication electronics; author of Fields and Waves in Communication Electronics.
After hundreds of years discovering nature's secrets, scientists have replaced creation, matter and immaterial spirit with evolution, matter and immaterial fields such as electromagnetism that perform essentially the same functions!
To make the book useful to a wide audience, there are two extensive background chapters on classical electromagnetism and elementary quantum mechanics.
