- Ampere's equation : An expression for the magnetic force between two electric current-carrying wire segments.
- Ampere's law : The integral of a magnetic field over a closed path is equal to the conduction current through the surface bounded by the path.
- Ampere's rule : Is a right-hand rule for the direction of deviation of a compass needle caused by the presence of a straight, electric-current carrying, wire.
- Biot-Savart's law : Add brief definition or description
- Coulomb's law : An inverse-square distance law, like Newton's gravitational law, describing the forces acting between electric point charges; also valid for the force between magnetic poles.
- Coulomb's law (magnetic) : An inverse-square law for the force between two magnetic monopoles.
- Faraday's law (electromagnetism) : States that a change in magnetic flux generates an electromotive force (EMF).
- Gauss' law (electrostatics) : Relates the surface integral of the electric displacement through a closed surface to the electric charge enveloped by the closed surface.
- Gauss' law (magnetism) : States that the total magnetic flux through a closed surface is zero; this means that magnetic monopoles do not exist.
- Lenz' law : States that a change in magnetic flux gives an induced current that opposes this change.
- Vacuum (science) : A realizable vacuum with a gaseous pressure that is much less than atmospheric.
