Step 1 of 3

 Lecture 1:  There are 4 fundamental forces in Nature:  1. Gravitational  2. Weak  3. Strong  4. Electromagnetic   Electromagnetism is the underlying force behind most observable phenomena  Electricity (Lightning, electric current)  Magnetism ( Electric Motors, MRI)  Radiation (X-rays, Light)  Chemistry   Electric Charge  Electric charges create electric fields  Electric fields lead to forces on electric charges  Moving electric charges called current create magnetic fields   There are two types of charges:  Positive and Negative  Like charges repel and opposite charges attract  Charge is conserved (cannot be created or destroyed)  Charge is quantized in units of electron charge
