electromagnetic induction
a current flows in a wire when the wire is moved through a magnetic field

electromagnetic radiation
Radiation-emitted in the form of an electromagnetic wave. Electromagnetic radiation includes all the forms of light including visible light.

electromagnetic wave
A wave that consists of an electric field in conjunction with an electromagnetic field-oscillating at the same frequency. An electromagnetic wave travels at the speed of light. Examples of electromagnetic waves are light, radio, etc.

electromagnetic spectrum 
the entire range of radiation extending in frequency from approximately 1023 hertz (frequency) to 0 hertz or, in corresponding wavelengths, from 1013 centimeter to infinity and including, in order of decreasing frequency, cosmic ray-photons, gamma rays, x-rays, ultraviolet radiation, visible light, infrared radiation, microwaves, and radio waves.

electromagnetism-noun
The area of physics that deals with electrical and magnetic-fields. Electromagnetism is of the four fundamental forces necessary for all existence throughout the Universe; the others being gravity, the strong interaction (or, the strong force), and the weak interaction (or, the weak force). 
    Electromagnetism is magnetism developed by a current of electricity; a fundamental physical force that is responsible for interactions between charged particles which occur because of their charge and for the emission and absorption of photons, which, of the four forces is about 100 times weaker than the strong force (or, interaction), and that extends over infinite distances but is dominant over atomic and molecular distances – called also electromagnetic force; compare gravity, strong force, weak force.
    Electromagmetism is a branch of physical science that deals with the physical relations between electricity and magnetism.

electron microscope
uses electrons instead of light as optical microscopes do; microscopy on the Net

electron transport
A sequence of biochemical reduction oxidation reactions that affect the transfer of electrons through a series of carriers.
     The successive passage of electrons from one cytochrome (proteins containing iron) or flavoprotein (a group of enzymes containing flavin bound to protein and acting as dehydrogenation catalysts in biological reactions) to another by a series of oxidation reduction reactions during the aerobic production of ATP, with the electrons originating from an oxidizable substrate and ultimately being passed to molecular oxygen. The oxidation reduction reactions generate the energy required for the production of ATP.

England/United Kingdom
a division of the United Kingdom, the southern part of the island of Great Britain; originally settled by Celtic peoples, it was subsequently conquered by Romans, Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Danes and Normans; acts of union joined England with Wales in 1536, with Scotland in 1707 to create the political entity of Great Britain, and, in 1801, with Ireland to form the United Kingdom. London is the capital and the largest city of both England and the United Kingdom
