Electromagnets: Winding Things Up!

Young scholars explore solenoids and electromagnets. After building an electromagnet, students use a TI Graphing calculator, a CBL 2 interface and a magnetic field sensor to measure the strength of a magnetic field. They create a graph of the information and examine the relationship between the number of wire winds and the magnetic field strength.
