Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
Relating to the interrelation of electric currents or fields and magnetic fields.
- ‘Water is a good conductor of electricity and could be channeling electromagnetic currents of the Earth.’
- ‘The first step was the realization that electromagnetic energy cannot always be treated simply as a wave passing through space.’
- ‘In many ways, however, the weak force resembles the electromagnetic force.’
- ‘This energy is then re-emitted as an electromagnetic wave with the same frequency of the original wave.’
- ‘Light is an electromagnetic wave that can carry angular momentum by way of circular polarization.’
- ‘Thus, the higher the energy of the incoming particles, the stronger the electromagnetic interaction it feels.’
- ‘It does this by applying current to the electromagnetic clutch just ahead of the rear differential, locking it entirely if necessary.’
- ‘Now researchers have used a slab of a new kind of material to focus diverging electromagnetic waves into a narrow cone.’
- ‘The two systems contain quartz-like properties and an electromagnetic current.’
- ‘They made sure it wasn't some kind of electromagnetic disturbance, such as a solar flare or lightning.’
- ‘In fact gravitational interaction is about 10 times weaker than the electromagnetic.’
- ‘They are the electromagnetic interaction, the weak interaction and the strong interaction.’
- ‘There could also be waves of electromagnetic energy both shorter and longer than visible light.’
- ‘The unifying feature of this theory was that it unified Einstein's theory of gravitation and Maxwell's electromagnetic theory.’
- ‘An electromagnetic current stimulates the toxins in your body, which then exit via the 2,000 sweat glands on each foot.’
- ‘The electromagnetic security fields appear to have no effect on these devices.’
- ‘Maxwell believed electromagnetic waves such as light to be vibrations in the ether.’
- ‘Classical electromagnetic theory then requires that in this process they should radiate away some of their energy.’
- ‘An alternative approach is to use electromagnetic rather than seismic information.’
- ‘For example, the electromagnetic force between a proton and an electron is 10 times stronger than the gravitational force.’
