Electrostatic forces and fields


What is Electrostatic forces and fields?

An electric field is generated by electrically charged particles and time changing magnetic fields.

who discovered how electric fields are generated?

Although magnets and magnetism were known much earlier, the study of magnetic fields began in 1269 when French scholar Petrus Peregrinus de Maricourt mapped out the magnetic field on the surface of a spherical magnet using iron needles.
