sr.vinay Posted April 19, 2010 Share Posted April 19, 2010 According to what I've read about magnetic fields, all they're described as are imaginary lines around the magnet that depict the area where the magnet has effects upon. What exactly is a magnetic field? And how is the attraction caused? Merged post follows: Consecutive posts mergedOkay, since no one's replying to this thinking this as something amateurish, let me rephrase it. I need someone to explain how the attraction is caused by magnets. What is the 'field'? We think of magnetic fields as imaginary lines of force (let's say I think of it that way). How is this force caused around the magnet? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
