Electrostatic Fields

  • Minoru Fujimoto


In early physics, static electricity was studied as a subject independent from magnetism; it was after Oersted’s experiment that the relation between an electric current and the magnetic field was recognized. Today, static and dynamic electricity are viewed as clearly exclusive phenomena; however, many early findings on static phenomena significantly contributed to establishing present day knowledge of electromagnetism.
