1. General Term: Electromagnetism
Electromagnetism A theory that deals with the physical relations between electricity and
magnetism, and which shows visible light to be part of a spectrum of
electromagnetic radiation encompassing radio waves, microwaves, and

particle physics , in which electromagnetism
and the weak nuclear force were unified (e.g., the electroweak
force ), and these unified with the strong nuclear force (fundamental
particle physics) (1940's - present).

is the laws
of gravity and electromagnetism .
All three of the gravitational, electric, and magnetic forces
obey "inverse square laws" - that is the force of attraction or
repulsion between two such bodies, falls off by the reciprocal

If the relative strengths of these forces were different, the resultant
universe would also be different. For example, increasing the strong

6. God, Humanity and the Cosmos Topic: Collapsing Atoms
The fly in the
ointment was electromagnetism . An electric charge moving in a circle emits
energy. If electrons are classical particles emitting energy in this way, they
would very rapidly dissipate all their energy and fall into the nucleus .

of gravitation and electromagnetism . He complained that the new quantum
theory was fundamentally incomplete without this unification. It remains one of
the physical sciences greatest unsolved puzzles.
