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).
