    I'm not sure what you mean. The electromagnetic force is a fundamental type of force in nature. It's one of the four fundamental types of forces (at least in classical physics).

    I think the question is asking "what types of everyday forces are fundamentally electromagnetic forces." The answer is practically any force you can think of other than gravity.
