This site from the Exploratorium provides a simple demonstration of the interaction between a moving magnet and its induced electromagnetic field. As the magnet is dropped down a metallic tube, it induces eddy currents...
This activity demonstrates the magnetic field induced by a current-carrying wire. A group of compasses are arranged around the wire indicating when a magnetic field stronger than the Earth?s field is produced. M...
This activity is concerned with the magnetic field generated by a current-carrying wire. Two current-carrying wires are placed near each other as forces push them apart or pull them together. Materials needed,...
This hands-on classroom activity will help students understand the connections between magnets and electricity generation. The learning cycle planner includes an exploration phase with a hands-on activity and a...
