# Gravity & Magnetism: Does it Affect Electrical Charges & Coils?

• Hey there
In summary, gravity does not directly affect electrical charges or coils, but it can indirectly affect them by causing objects to move and create friction. Magnets can affect electrical charges and coils through electromagnetic induction. There is a relationship between gravity and magnetism, as both are fundamental forces governed by similar laws. Electrical charges and coils interact through electromagnetic forces, with the flow of an electric current in a coil creating a magnetic field. Both gravity and magnetism can be used to generate electricity, with gravity being harnessed through hydropower and magnetism being used in generators and motors.
Hey there
My physics sucks but does gravity affect electical charges inside devices... Does it affect magnetism in coils... I thought it has an affect on anything regardless of how small it is.. right?

In Newtonian theory it affects EVERYTHING which has the property of "mass". In GR theory it affects EVERYTHING, since it apperars in the equations of motion (geodesic equations). So, yes, according to us so far understanding of gravity, gravity affects everything, reagrdless its space scale.

## 1. How does gravity affect electrical charges and coils?

Gravity does not directly affect electrical charges or coils. However, it can indirectly affect them by causing objects to move and creating friction, which can generate electrical charges.

## 2. Can magnets affect electrical charges and coils?

Yes, magnets can affect electrical charges and coils. When a magnet moves near a conductor, it can induce a current in the conductor. This is known as electromagnetic induction.

## 3. Is there a relationship between gravity and magnetism?

Yes, there is a relationship between gravity and magnetism. Both are fundamental forces of nature and are governed by similar laws, such as the inverse square law. However, their effects on objects are different.

## 4. How do electrical charges and coils interact with each other?

Electrical charges and coils interact through electromagnetic forces. When an electric current flows through a coil, it creates a magnetic field. This magnetic field can then interact with other charges and coils, causing them to move or produce a current.

## 5. Can gravity and magnetism be used to generate electricity?

Yes, both gravity and magnetism can be used to generate electricity. Gravity can be harnessed through hydropower, where the force of falling water turns turbines to generate electricity. Magnetism is used in generators and motors, where the movement of magnets and coils produces an electric current.
