Activity: Slinkies and Magnetic FieldsLesson Planet
10th - 12th
Your advanced physics class will appreciate this lesson in which they use magnetic field sensors to determine the relationship between the number of turns per meter of a solenoid and the magnetic field produced. The materials for this...
Magnetic Fields, Magnetic Forces, and Electromagnetic Induction Sample ProblemsLesson Planet
9th - Higher Ed
After high schoolers have learned about electromagnetic induction, they can solve these 10 practice problems. They calculate magnetic field strength, magnetic force, electromotive force, and output voltage. This is a choice option as a...
Magnetic Fields and Forces Homework/Electromagnetic Induction HomeworkLesson Planet
9th - 12th
Here are two electromagnetism homework assignments rolled into one. The first eight practice problems deal with the magnetic field and magnetic force exerted by current-carrying wires. The second set of seven problems are specific to...
Experiment : Magnetic Field ViewerLesson Planet
5 mins 6th - 8th
Iron filings are suspended in a bottle of baby oil and then a magnet is held up to it to bring the magnetic field to view. The remainder of this homemade video gives the instructions for making this 3-D magnetic viewing cell from common...
The Invisible Electromagnet: A Transparent Magnetic Field ViewerLesson Planet
6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Audio speakers, hard drives, credit cards, and even the earth use magnetic fields. While we observe the effect of magnetic fields, we can't actually see them. A viewer helps participants explore magnetic fields, some of the items that...
Measuring the Interplanetary Magnetic FieldLesson Planet
6th - 8th
Scientists need to figure out how to measure interplanetary magnetic fields, but the magnetic field of the spacecraft is interfering with their readings. Scholars attempt to solve the problem that has perplexed NASA scientists for years.
May the Magnetic Force Be with YouLesson Planet
10th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Class members use mathematics in order to better understand magnetic forces and their interaction on charged particles. After a demonstration of the interaction between a magnet and an electron beam using a CRT computer monitor, learners...
Mapping the Ambient Magnetic FieldLesson Planet
9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
No GPS allowed! High school scientists continue to explore magnetic fields with a hands-on activity. After mapping the ambient magnetic field in the classroom and completing data analysis, they write about the similarities and...
Iron Filings and Magnetic Field LinesLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
How do magnetic fields differ? Allow scholars to see the difference between 2-D and 3-D magnetic fields. They construct models of both and observe how they are similar and different. It is the fifth installment of an 18-part unit.
