The new approach to geometrization of electromagnetic field is suggested, where previous author’s results on geometrical interpretation of quantum objects are taken into account. These results can be considered as a justification for considering of spaces with higher dimensions for geometrization of electromagnetic field. Electromagnetic fields and potentials are considered here as components of torsion tensor in 5-dimensional affinely connected space where the usual 4-space-time is a pseudo-Euclidean hyperplane. Electromagnetic potentials and tensor of electromagnetic field are represented by different components of the torsion tensor as it should be for the notions of different physical meaning. Suggested geometrization is free of such disadvantages of the known 5-dimensional Kaluza’s theory as the absence of physical foundations for introduction of additional spatial dimensions and the lack of any relationship with quantum mechanics.
