Electrostatics (also known as static electricity) is the branch of physics that deals with the forces exerted by a static electric field. Electrostatics involves the buildup of charge in objects due to contact between mostly nonconductive surfaces. Electromagnetism is the physics of the electromagnetic field which exerts a force on particles that possess the property of electric charge and is in turn affected by the presence and motion of those particles. The magnetic field is produced by the motion of electric charges and it causes the magnetic force associated with magnetics.
