Physics Quiz: Practice Questions On Electromagnetic Fields!

Do you know what an electronic field is? An electronic field is a non-quantum field produced by accelerating electric charges. It is the field described by electrodynamics and is the counterpart to the quantized electromagnetic field. The electromagnetic field possesses magnetic and electrical properties and surrounds objects with an electrical charge. Whenever a voltage is present, an electric field forms, this quiz will tell you about electromagnetic fields. Don’t forget to procure your certificate when you are done.
