Question 1: For instance, electrons spiraling around a field line produce ________ which is detectable in radio waves.
Electromagnetic radiationPulsarCrab NebulaSynchrotron radiation

Question 2: For example, a ________ of the H-field in a closed loop yields the total free current in the loop (not including the bound current).

Question 4: A finite length electromagnet produces essentially the same magnetic field as a uniform ________ of the same shape and size, with its strength and polarity determined by the current flowing through the coil.
