J5-16 MAGNETIC FIELD OF WIRE, LOOP, SOLENOID

Additional Info

  • ID Code: J5-16
  • Purpose: Visualize magnetic field lines for simple current configurations
  • Description:

    A portable power supply and switch mechanism are used to provide a brief, strong current through any of three transparency-mounted conductor configurations. Connect current leads to the conductor configuration desired; single wire, single loop of wire, and multiple-turn coil are available. While current is on, sprinkle iron filings on plastic sheet passing through the sample and gently tap the plastic sheet to make the iron filings align along the magnetic field lines.

    For safety and to preserve the lifespan of the apparatus, do not turn current on for more than a second. Please be careful not to touch leads or conductors while current is on.
