 # Electromagnetism MCQs

For your better entry test preparation and better Physics MCQs preparation, in this section, we are going to post Electromagnetism MCQs. Electromagnetism is a branch of physics which deals with the study of the electromagnetic force. The electromagnetic force is a type of physical interaction that occurs between electrically charged particles. The electromagnetic force usually exhibits electromagnetic fields such as electric fields, magnetic fields, and light.

The electromagnetic force is one of the four fundamental forces in nature. The other 3 fundamental forces are the strong interaction, the weak interaction, and gravitation.
