# Define magnetic force.

Magnetic forces are the forces due to magnetic field of a magnet. It is an attractive or repulsive force exerted on a magnetic pole or a moving electric charge in a magnetic field.

In physics, particularly electromagnetism, the Lorentz force is the force on a point charge due to electromagnetic fields. If a particle of charge q moves with velocity v in the presence of an electric field E and a magnetic field B, then it will experience a force

$mathbf{F} = q(mathbf{E} + mathbf{v} times mathbf{B})$
