  • Ampere's equation [r]: An expression for the magnetic force between two electric current-carrying wire segments. [e]
  • Ampere's law [r]: The integral of a magnetic field over a closed path is equal to the conduction current through the surface bounded by the path. [e]
  • Ampere's rule [r]: 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. [e]
  • Biot-Savart's law [r]: Add brief definition or description
  • Coulomb's law [r]: 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. [e]
  • Coulomb's law (magnetic) [r]: An inverse-square law for the force between two magnetic monopoles. [e]
  • Faraday's law (electromagnetism) [r]: States that a change in magnetic flux generates an electromotive force (EMF). [e]
  • Gauss' law (electrostatics) [r]: Relates the surface integral of the electric displacement through a closed surface to the electric charge enveloped by the closed surface. [e]
  • Gauss' law (magnetism) [r]: States that the total magnetic flux through a closed surface is zero; this means that magnetic monopoles do not exist. [e]
  • Lenz' law [r]: States that a change in magnetic flux gives an induced current that opposes this change. [e]
  • Vacuum (science) [r]: A realizable vacuum with a gaseous pressure that is much less than atmospheric. [e]
