Students will learn about the Lorentz force and how moving particles interact in a magnetic field. In addition, the right hand rule is covered.
Describes the effects of a magnetic field on charged particles that move within the magnetic field. The charged particles may be individual particles or they may be a current inside a wire.
The right hand rule is explained for the case of a charge particle entering a magnetic field. The radius of the loop is derived for this scenario.
The force on a moving charge particle in a magnetic field is demonstrated and explained here using an electron laser and Helmholtz coils.
Demonstrates the force created by a current moving through a magnetic field.
Solving problems involving the radius of a charge's circular path using the equation r = mv/qB
Determining the direction of a magnetic force on a moving charge in a magnetic field using the second right-hand rule
Determining the direction of a magnetic force on a current carrying wire in a magnetic field using the second right-hand rule
Solving problems involving the magnetic force on a moving charge using the equation F[B] = |q|vBsinθ
Use the right hand rule to determine the magnitude and direction of the force of a B-field on a current-carrying wire.
Reviews why magnets work and problems involving magnetic interaction and electron movement.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Lorentz Force.
This is an activity for students to complete before and after reading the Electric Currents and Magnetic Fields Concept.
This study guide reviews electromagnetism concepts: magnetic field and field lines, first right hand rule, magnetic flux, solenoid, electromagnetic induction, force on charged particle, second right hand rule, and inductance.
