- Lorentz force : Force on an electrically charged particle that moves through a magnetic and an electric field.
- Magnetism : Property of attracting iron.
- Magnetic moment : A vector property of an object that determines the torque it experiences in a magnetic flux density.
- Relative permeability : A factor describing magnetizability as a proportionality between magnetic flux density and magnetic field in a magnetic material or medium.
