magnetism at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Phenomenon associated with magnetic fields, the effects of such fields, and the motion of electric charges. Some types of magnetism are diamagnetism, paramagnetism, ferromagnetism, and ferrimagnetism. Magnetic fields exert forces on moving electric charges. The effects of such forces are evident in the deflection of an electron beam in a cathode-ray tube and the motor force on a current-carrying conductor. Other applications of magnetism range from the simple magnetic door catch to medical imaging devices and electromagnets used in high-energy particle accelerators.

manifestation of the force in nature which is seen in a

2. The science which treats of magnetic phenomena.

3. Power of attraction; power to excite the feelings and to
gain the affections. ``By the magnetism of interest our
affections are irresistibly attracted.'' --Glanvill.

{Animal magnetism}, a force, more or less analogous to
magnetism, which, it has been alleged, is produced in
animal tissues, and passes from one body to another with
or without actual contact. The existence of such a force,
and its potentiality for the cure of disease, were
asserted by Mesmer in 1775. His theories and methods were
afterwards called mesmerism, a name which has been
popularly applied to theories and claims not put forward
by Mesmer himself. See {Mesmerism}, {Biology}, {Od},

{Terrestrial magnetism}, the magnetic force exerted by the
earth, and recognized by its effect upon magnetized
needles and bars.

n 1: attraction for iron; associated with electric currents as
