Understanding Magnetic Field

Magnetic FieldA magnetic field is a field of force produced by electrical currents or a magnetic object or particle, and detected by the force it exerts on other magnetic materials and moving electric charges. Its importance cannot be underestimated, with the concept having many practical applications and explaining many universal phenomena, including the earth’s rotation.

The Bright Hub guide to magnetic filed contains a library collection of well-written and edited articles that provide comprehensive information on all that you want to know about magnetic field and related topics. The basic user can read an article on how a simple electromagnet works, a more advanced user can read through the magnetic effects of electricity, researchers can understand the nature of magnetospheres in planets, and much more.
