Students use an AC/DC electronics laboratory, a power supply, and a Magnaprobe™ wand to detect and compare the magnetic field pattern surrounding a bar magnet and a current-carrying coil.
Students use a 3-axis magnetic field sensor and the AC/DC electronics laboratory to determine how the strength of the magnetic field at the center of a current-carrying coil depends on the coil current and radius.
Students use a DC power supply and semi-conductive paper to create dipole and parallel plate electrodes, and then use the principles of electric fields and electric potential energy to determine the shape and direction of the...
