Tripping or trip-free relay PRINCIPLES OF ELECTRICITY AND MAGNETISM: UNITS 21. Magnets and magnetism. Any body which has the ability to attract iron or steel is called a magnet. The attractive ability of such a body is called magnetism. Certain specimens of iron ore sometimes possess the property when they are taken from the earth. Such natural specimens will attract and hold iron filings and are called natural magnets or lodestones.

Therefore electric charge, like matter, is conserved and can neither be created nor destroyed. It can, however, be forced to move and thus transmit power or produce electrical phenomena. Electrical energy (not electricity) can be generated (produced from energy of some other form) by forcing electrons to move in certain paths. 29. An electromotive force (emf) is the force or pressure, measured in volts (V), which makes electrons move or tends to make them move. Thus, if an emf is impressed across the two ends of a wire, it will force the electrons of the atoms which compose the wire to move from atom to atom, in the direction of the emf, through the wire, if we assume, of course, that a closed conducting path is provided.

Thus, if an emf is impressed across the two ends of a wire, it will force the electrons of the atoms which compose the wire to move from atom to atom, in the direction of the emf, through the wire, if we assume, of course, that a closed conducting path is provided. A lightning flash is merely a movement of electrons between the atoms of the atmosphere caused by an emf or voltage existing between the clouds and the earth. 30. An electric current, measured in amperes (A), consists of a movement or flow of electrically charged particles.
