Magnetism

Magnetism is caused by moving electric charges that are a property of certain types of subatomic particles.

 


Explanation

Electric charge gives rise to and interacts with the electromagnetic force, one of the four fundamental forces of nature. The most familiar carriers of electrical charge are the electron and proton. The corresponding antiparticles are the positron and the antiproton.

 


History

British chemist Michael Faraday (1791 - 1867) pioneered the development of electricity as we see it everywhere today.
