Pronunciation: [ɪlˌɛktɹə͡ʊmɐɡnˈɛtɪk] (IPA)

Electromagnetic is a word that describes the interaction between electrical and magnetic fields. It is commonly used in the fields of physics and engineering, but there are several other terms that can be used to convey the same meaning. Some synonyms for electromagnetic include electric-magnetic, electro-magnetic, and electrodynamic. These terms all describe the same phenomenon of electric fields interacting with magnetic fields. Other synonyms include electrical or magnetic radiation, which are commonly used to describe the various types of electromagnetic waves, such as radio waves, microwaves, and radiation from the sun. Regardless of the term used, all synonyms for electromagnetic refer to the same fundamental property of the universe.

Famous quotes with Electromagnetic

  • For in 1900 all electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths was already known at least to the extent that one could not seek in it the more striking characteristics of X-rays such as, for example, the strong penetrating power.
    Max von Laue
  • At the head of these new discoveries and insights comes the establishment of the facts that electricity is composed of discrete particles of equal size, or quanta, and that light is an electromagnetic wave motion.
    Johannes Stark
  • For under certain conditions the chemical atoms emit light waves of a specific length or oscillation frequency - their familiar characteristic spectra - and these can come in the form of electromagnetic waves only from accelerated electric quanta.
    Johannes Stark
  • I joined the Army and was sent to the MIT radiation laboratory after a few months of introduction to electromagnetic wave theory in a special course, given for Army personnel at the University of Chicago.
    Jack Steinberger
  • Ladies and gentlemen, today we're here to honor electricity, the charge that charges everything from those electrons snapping in our brain to our father the sun. What's the sun It's kind of like a brain. electromagnetic field, solar flares sparking back and forth from those nerve cells. We're all one, folks, giant blobs of electricity, all of us. Positive & negative, electromagnetic fields just circling each other. Positive, negative, north, south, male and female. Looking for that electric moment. Magnet to magnet, opposites attract.
