Students will learn the idea of magnetic field lines, how they behave in the situation of permanent magnets and current carrying wires and also how to calculate the magnetic field at an arbitrary distance from the wire.
Understand the size and shape of the Earth's magnetic fields; explore the magnetic fields of other planets.
Demonstrates that a magnetic field is produced by electric current.
This quiz tests general magnet knowledge, including drawing magnetic fields according to the poles of the magnet and calculating the magnetic field at a given distance away.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Magnetic Fields.
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.
