Electric and Magnetic Field Effects

  • Yoshifumi Tanimoto


All substances are composed of electrons and nuclei. The electrons have electric charges and their spin motions bring about magnetism. Therefore, it is to be expected that the chemical and physical behaviors of substances will be affected by factors in the physical environment such as electric and magnetic fields.
