Best Answer

An electromagnetic device is any device that uses electromagnets to operate. Some examples include: electric motors, electric generators (alternators), speakers, etc. An electromagnet is typically a coil of wire with an electric current running through it which generates a magnetic field according to laws and principles developed by Ampere, Faraday, and Maxwell among others. Electromagnetism was discovered by Oersted in 1820.
