Similarly one may ask, what type of force is a magnetic force?
Magnetic force, attraction or repulsion that arises between electrically charged particles because of their motion. It is the basic force responsible for such effects as the action of electric motors and the attraction of magnets for iron.
Similarly, what is the difference between magnetic field and magnetic force? Magnetic force means the force exerted by a magnet on other magnet or magnetic substances. Thus a magnetic field can be defined as that which can exert a magnetic force and can produce magnetic induction in the matter placed in it.
Beside this, what creates a magnetic force?
Magnetism is the force exerted by magnets when they attract or repel each other. Magnetism is caused by the motion of electric charges. Every substance is made up of tiny units called atoms. Each atom has electrons, particles that carry electric charges. All magnets have north and south poles.
What are the two types of magnetic forces?
The two types of forces are related; a moving magnet can make electrical charges move, cause an electric current, and in turn cause magnetism.
