Electromagnetism and Electromagnet




  1. When current passes through a conductor, magnetic field will be generated around the conductor and the conductor become a magnet. This phenomenon is called electromagnetism. 
  2. Since the magnet is produced by electric current, hence it is called the electromagnet.
  3. An electromagnet is a type of magnet in which the magnetic field is produced by a flow of electric current. The magnetic field disappears when the current ceases.
  4. The magnetism of an electromagnet is switched on or off using electric current.
  5. In short, when current flow through a conductor, magnetic field will be generated. When the current ceases, the magnetic field disappear.

An electromagnet is a type of magnet in which the magnetic field is produced by a flow of electric current.
