Perplex by magnetism?

  1. May 24, 2007 #1
    I always have found magnetism hard to understand. Maybe even harder to understand than quantum mechancis? This could be spurred from the fact that my command of vector analysis isn't great. How do I develop an intuition for magnetism?

    well what is it you don't understand?

    I doubt anyone understands concepts like magnetism straight away. They develop their understanding by reading and visualising and practising methods.
