The definition of a magnetic field is a place in space near a magnet or an electric current where a physical field is created from a moving electric charge that creates force on another moving electric charge.

An example of a magnetic field is the Earth's magnetic field.

A field of force associated with changing electric fields , as when electric charges are in motion. Magnetic fields exert deflective forces on moving electric charges. Most magnets have magnetic fields as a result of the spinning motion of the electrons orbiting the atoms of which they are composed; electromagnets create such fields from electric current moving through coils. Large objects, such as the earth, other planets, and stars, also produce magnetic fields.
