Magnetism and Electromagnetism

The biggest magnet in the world is at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and can reach 100 tesla. By comparison, magnets that lift cars are about two tesla. The 11th presentation in this series covers magnetism, focusing on poles, attraction, and repulsion, and then moves on to electromagnetism. It also touches on conduction and insulation.
