What is the difference between electrostatic and magnetic forces?

I am an Alevel chemistry student and I know that this might also be a physics question, so I'm going to post this on both forums so that I can see the answer from different perspectives

thank you very much for reading :0:)

Electromagnetic forces happen between charged particles i.e. ions.
Magnetic forces happen between positive and negative objects.
The difference is that electromagnetic happens in everything that is charged whether it is moving or not, but magnetic forces only happen between moving objects. Everything has a electromagnetic force, but not all things have a magnetic force e.g. humans. Hope that helps!

Thanks for your input- for my other questions also I wasn’t as confident in my knowledge as you are at GCSE so I applaud you for that hehe and I hope you do really well!! I do unfortunately still have some issues with that concept and will ask my teacher so don't worry (both magnetic forces and electromagnetic forces occur between charged particles, even though I'm aware that magnetic forces are due to movement I still don't fully understand how they can be distinguished so easily) have a nice evening!!
