    The magnetic field will be perpendicular to the electric field and vice versa An electric field is the area which surrounds an electric charge within which it is capable of exerting a perceptible force on another electric charge. A magnetic field is the area of force surrounding a magnetic pole, or a current flowing through a conductor, in which there is a magnetic flux. A magnetic field can be produced when an electric current is passed through an electric circuit wound in a helix or solenoid. The relationship that exists between an electric field and a magnetic field is one of electromagnetic interaction as a consequence of associating elementary particles. The electrostatic force between charged particles is an example of this relationship.

    Time varying electric and magnetic fields are the sources of each others existence in some cases like the EM waves.
