Distinguish, differentiate, compare and explain what is the differences between electric and magnetic forces. Comparison and Difference.

Differences Between Electric and Magnetic Forces

1. The electric force acts in the direction of the E field, whereas the magnetic force acts perpendicular to the B field.

2. The electric force acts on a charged particle whether or not it is moving, whereas the magnetic force acts on a charged particle only if it is moving.

3. The electric force does work in displacing a charged particle, whereas the magnetic force does no work when a charged particle is displaced.
