# 19 Difference Between Electrical Circuit and Magnetic Circuit

In the electricity and magnetism, electric and magnetic field studies are most important. Many similarities and dissimilarities find out in both fields.

Mostly, both fields have a different approach. So, you should know the difference between the electrical field and the magnetic field.

I am explaining more things through the difference between electrical field and magnetic field. These concepts will help you understand both fields.

### 19 Difference between Electrical Circuit and Magnetic Circuit

Let’s explain the comparison of electric and magnetic fields in tabular form.

#### Circuit Diagram of Electrical and Magnetic Circuits:

• How does an electrical circuit work?

You can see the following diagram, the resistance is connected in the electrical circuit. This resistance (R) is helped to limit the producing electrical currents (I) in the electrical circuit.

• How does a magnetic circuit work?

The same working function has done. But in the magnetic circuit, we are used reluctance (S) to limit the generating magnetic fluxes (Φ). You can understand from the below figure.

The phenomena of the interrelation of an electric field and the magnetic field are known as ‘Electromagnetism’.

#### Calculation of different quantities of electrical and magnetic circuits

These are the important formulae for an electrical and magnetic circuit. For calculating different electromagnetic quantities, you can use online electromagnetism calculator

In this tutorial, I have covered many concepts of the difference between electrical circuit and magnetic circuit. Also, covered dissimilarities and similarities between electric and magnetic fields.

If you have any doubt or any point to include, feel free to discuss in the comment section.
