  Electromagnetism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Electromagnetism is the physics of the electromagnetic field: a field, encompassing all of space, which exerts a force on those particles that possess the property of electric charge, and is in turn affected by the presence and motion of such particles.
A non-zero electric field is produced by the presence of electrically charged particles, and gives rise to the electric force; this is the force that causes static electricity and drives the flow of electric charge (electric current) in electrical conductors.
In classical electromagnetism, the electromagnetic field obeys a set of equations known as Maxwell's equations, and the electromagnetic force is given by the Lorentz force law.

 Electromagnetic field - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An electric field is produced when the charge is stationary with respect to an observer measuring the properties of the charge and a magnetic field (as well as an electric field) is produced when the charge moves (creating an electric current) with respect to this observer.
An alternative interpretation would be that the field is not actually a velocity field, but a flux density field of photonic fluid, which is constantly moving at the same speed: the speed of light, independent of the speed of the observer (the charged object).
The tensor character of this combined electromagnetic field implies that the field is anisotropic with respect to the velocity of the charged particle on which it produces a force: the Lorentz force varies with the velocity of the charged particle.

An electromagnetic field is composed of two related vector fields: the electric field and the magnetic field.
When referred to as the electromagnetic field, the field is imagined to encompass all of space; typically an electromagnetic field is considered to be limited to a local area around an object in space.
If the field were the velocity field of a fluid then the fluid would cause the object to accelerate continually in the direction of the fluid's motion, to the point that the object's speed becomes paradoxically far greater than that of the fluid is in which it is immersed.

 Define electromagnetic field - a Whatis.com definition - see also: EM field
An electromagnetic field, sometimes referred to as an EM field, is generated when charged particles, such as electrons, are accelerated.
Electromagnetic fields were first discovered in the 19th century, when physicists noticed that electric arcs (sparks) could be reproduced at a distance, with no connecting wires in between.
Electromagnetic fields are typically generated by alternating current (AC) in electrical conductors.

 Electromagnetic Radiation: Field Memo
Yet, electromagnetic radiation is exactly that, electrical energy moving through space as a wave, and electrical energy in a wire is a special case in which the energy is guided by a wire.
Since both the E field and the H field components of electromagnetic waves are absorbed by living tissue, and since the relationship between E and H is complicated in the near-field, we must measure both E and H when evaluating near-field hazards.
Ratio of the electric field (E) to the magnetic field (H), in the far-field this is the characteristic impedance of free space, 377 Ohms.

 The Earth's Magnetic Field
The field lines defining the structure of the magnetic field are similar to those of a simple bar magnet, as illustrated in the following figure.
Thus, true north (defined by the direction to the north rotational pole) does not coincide with magnetic north (defined by the direction to the north magnetic pole) and compass directions must be corrected by fixed amounts at given points on the surface of the Earth to yield true directions.
The origin of the Earth's magnetic field is not completely understood, but is thought to be associated with electrical currents produced by the coupling of convective effects and rotation in the spinning liquid metallic outer core of iron and nickel.

The electromagnetic field generates a force F on a charged particle, given by the Lorentz equation
However, the force of an electric field on a charged particle is \mathbf{F} = q \mathbf{E} , and this force is independent of the velocity of the particle, which means that the particle will accelerate continually in the direction of the field.
Phenomena in the list are marked with a star (\star) if they consist of magnetic fields and moving charges which can be reduced by suitable Lorentz transformations to electric fields and static charges.

 Electromagnetic Field Sensitivity
The major emphasis of this phase of the studies was the evaluation of the effects of the magnetic field generated by a coil fed from a sweep/function generator (Model 3030, B.K. Precision Dynascan Corp.).
Some patients reacted to the fields generated by the fluorescent lights, and others did not present the same signs and symptoms at each challenge, even though the reactions were significant when contrasted with the blank responses.
As a result of the weak field levels and short exposure time, the responses were mild except in two patients whose symptoms were so severe (e.g., drop attack, severe itching) that they received intravenous vitamin C, magnesium, and oxygen as a result of the prolonged and delayed reactions.

 PROTECTION FROM ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS
EMF protection is afforded by the Teslar wristwatch, manufactured by ELF International, the same company responsible for the development of the Light Beam Generator (see "Shedding Light on Lymphatic Health," Alternative Medicine magazine, May, 2000).
Named after Nikola Tesla, the inventor of alternating current and "father" of the technology it employs, the Teslar Watch produces its own energy field in the form of a "scalar wave," which has been shown to screen other ELF signals.
According to Valerie Hunt, Ph.D., and Professor Emeritus at UCLA, a renowned researcher of the human bioenergy field, scalar energy is created when two identical frequencies meet head on from opposite directions, canceling each other out to leave a stationary energy.

 ARRLWeb: RF Radiation and Electromagnetic Field Safety
But in the last 100 years, man-made fields at much higher intensities and with a very different spectral distribution have altered this natural EM background in ways that are not yet fully understood.
Because these fields dissipate rapidly with distance, "prudent avoidance" would mean staying perhaps 12 to 18 inches away from most Amateur Radio equipment (and 24 inches from power supplies with 1-kW RF amplifiers) whenever the ac power is turned on.
Unfortunately, determining the power density of the RF fields generated by an amateur station is not as simple as measuring low-frequency magnetic fields.
