Title: Do electrostatic charges interact with magnets or electromagnetic fields?
Post by: michaleben123 on 03/04/2019 09:07:47
Hi! Do electrostatic charges interact with magnets or electromagnetic field?
In what way?
Thanks

Yes. Magnetic fields exert a force on moving charges that is proportional to the velocity of the charge (relative to the magnetic field), the strength of the magnetic field, and the amount of charge that is moving. The force is perpendicular to both the magnetic field lines and the instantaneous velocity of the charge.

Yes they interact with both magnets and electromagnets. The Force is as posted above. The left and right hand rules might amuse you they give the direction of the forces, https://nationalmaglab.org/education/magnet-academy/watch-play/interactive/right-and-left-hand-rules
