The electromagnetic field affects the change in the behavior of charged objects surrounding a particular place. It extends indefinitely throughout space and known as electromagnetic interactions.
Lorentz Force Law and Maxwell’s Equation explains how the interaction between currents and charges occurs with the electromagnetic field.
Electromagnetic Field Structure:
The structure of electromagnetic field can be classified in two distinct methods: Continuous Structure and Discrete Structure.
Magnetic and electric fields are produced by an even motion of charged objects. The oscillating charges that produce magnetic and electric fields can be observed in a continuous, smooth and wavelike motion. The energy is observed as being continuous transfer between two electromagnetic field locations.
\( E = hv \)
\( \small E \)
\( \small h \)
\( \small v \)
Sources of Electromagnetic Fields:
The electromagnetic field can see everywhere in the surrounding, but they are invisible to human eye. The electric fields are produced by the electric charges that are present in the environment associated with thunderstorms. While the magnetic field of the earth causes the compass needle in North-South Direction. This is used as navigation for fish and birds.
Apart from the natural sources the electromagnetic field also includes the energy generated by man-made sources. Few human-made electromagnetic field sources are x-rays, electricity passing through the power socket and more. It depends on the frequency radio waves and how they are associated. For example, high frequency waves are used for broadcasting information through radio stations, television antennas, and mobile networks.
