Trivia: Quiz On Electricity And Magnetism!

Have you ever needed to understand more about electricity and magnetism? This quiz could help you. There is a definite relationship between electricity and magnetism. Magnetic fields are created by moving charges. Electricity is the existence of the motion of charged elements. Magnetism is the concept of interaction between moving objects. Magnetic fields can travel quite far. This fascinating quiz will attract a high score.
