Although we have known both electricity and magnetism for about 2000 years now, it was only 200 years ago we realised that they were intimately related. The chapter explains the relationship between magnetism and electricity in detail.
In this chapter, one learns about the following topics:
- The force exerted by the magnetic field on moving charged particles like protons, electrons and current-carrying wires.
- How magnetic field is produced by a current carrying conductor
- How particles are accelerated to high energies in cyclotrons
- How voltages and currents are detected by a galvanometer
