### Electric field due to changing uniform magnetic field

I think this could be a misunderstanding on my part , still I want to clarify this.Suppose in a region of boundless expanse, there is a uniform magnetic field which changes at a rate $\frac{d\phi}{dt}$...

### Nature of magnetic field

If I understand correctly a magnetic field is created by the exchange of photons between charged particles. Is it correct to assume that the magnetic field lines are the trajectories of said photons ...

### AC currents for self-inductance of a wire

I've been currently reading some stuff on self-inductance of a wire. There are different regimes where different approximations are used. For the AC currents the notes state that an approximation can ...

### How come subatomic particles interact with each other while not being in contact? [closed]

Although electrons stays away from protons an atom remains electrically neutral But two atoms one positively charged and another negatively charged remain so until they comes in contact. Can the ...

### Does magnetic moment change under inversion symmetry?

Since magnetic moment can be view as a small electric current circle. Pictorially, when apply inversion operation, the current direction is reversed, so I think the $\vec{m}\to -\vec{m}$ under ...

### Does stacking two magnets together increase the magnetic strength?

Just wondering if adding two (or more) identical magnets together increases their magnetic strength (in Tesla) as I am doing a physics write-up on the Lorentz force (Fleming's left-hand rule) as I ...

### Is electric current reference frame dependent?

$$EMF=\frac{dW_{external}}{dq}$$ $$dW_{ext}=\vec{F}_{net}.d\vec{s}$$ $$\vec{F}_{net}=\vec{F}_{inertial}+\vec{F}_{non-inertial}$$ $$dW_{inertial}+dW_{non-inertial}=dW_{external}$$ After reading the ...

### Magnetic Field Manipulation

For a reference of my level of knowledge, I have taken an undergrad electromagnetism class, and it wasn't pretty but I passed. I have a real interest in this so I don't mind doing more research. If ...
