Electromagnetism
 1. Electromagnetism is a branch of physics that deals with the study of the electromagnetic force, one of the four fundamental forces of nature. This force is responsible for the interaction between electrically charged particles, as well as the interaction between magnetic poles. Electromagnetism combines the study of electricity and magnetism into one coherent theory, explaining phenomena such as electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic waves, and the behavior of charged particles in these fields. The discoveries in electromagnetism by scientists like Michael Faraday and James Clerk Maxwell have revolutionized our understanding of the natural world and led to countless technological advancements, from electric motors and generators to communication technologies like radios and smartphones. Understanding electromagnetism is crucial in various fields, including physics, engineering, and technology, and it continues to shape our modern world in profound ways.What is the unit of electric charge?A) OhmB) AmpereC) VoltD) Coulomb2.
