Definition of electromagnetic field in English:

electromagnetic field


  • A field of force that consists of both electric and magnetic components, resulting from the motion of an electric charge and containing a definite amount of electromagnetic energy.

    • ‘The electromagnetic field does not carry charge and hence photons do not interact with each other.’
    • ‘Tears form in the Earth's electromagnetic field, letting massive amounts of UV rays in - melting cars, bridges, and people.’
    • ‘All fields - in particular electromagnetic fields - have fluctuations.’
    • ‘Base stations are surrounded by electromagnetic fields, an energy force that is created when electricity is generated.’
    • ‘Exposure to electromagnetic fields, such as magnetic resonance imaging, are contraindicated.’
