# Ch 6: Electricity and Magnetic Force

Use these video lessons and quizzes to help you understand the relationship between electricity and magnetic force. Learn about electric field diagrams, poles and dipoles, and discover the factors affecting conductivity, charge density and induction.

## Electricity and Magnetic Force - Chapter Summary

Do you know how magnetic fields are created? Can you identify variables that affect electromagnetic induction? If not, you can use this chapter to hone your knowledge of topics like repulsion and attraction, the significance of arrow direction and spacing, and variables affecting the force between two charged particles. You can also discover how charge density affects the voltage of a battery and therefore its electric potential. Instructors explain why a material's atomic properties determine its conductivity and use a compass to illustrate the existence of magnetic fields.

Once you've got a firm grasp of permanent magnets' and ferromagnetic materials' electron configurations, watch other lessons about how magnetic fields can be created with an electric current. Factors affecting the force and direction of a magnetically charged particle are covered as well, along with Faraday's law and the definitions of electromagnetic induction and mutual inductance. You can wrap up your study of electricity and magnetic force by discovering the electromagnets found in the technology we use everyday to store data or generate power. By the end of this chapter, you should be familiar with the following topics:

• Electric potential
• Electric charges
• Magnetic force
• Magnetic fields
• Electromagnetic induction

This chapter on electricity and magnetic force includes a number of video lessons, each of which is accompanied by a self-assessment quiz. Use them, along with the transcripts, to review lesson summaries and access text lessons covering vocabulary terms.
