Additional Info

  • ID Code: J6-33
  • Purpose: Demonstrate the force on a solenoid core, and to contrast forces on magnetic and non-magnetic cores.
  • Description: This demonstration uses the coil from demonstration K2-22, but in an unusual configuration:

    (1) Insert iron core, displace it as far as possible toward the base, and apply current until the core reaches the center of the coil. The core will eject a few meters. (2) Insert copper core (hollow) about one inch forward of the center of the coil. Apply current to slowly eject the core. (3) Insert both cores about an inch forward of the center of the coil. Predict the results. Dramatic. Stand clear!!
