  • Magnetic Fields Inquiry

    Posted on November 9, 2008 by Dr. Russell Harkay

    We will explore magnetic field configurations and field strengths for permanent magnets in this inquiry exercise. Students will observe the curved field lines around a permanent magnet, and explore how field strength varies with distance. They will observe the magnetic field created by a current-carrying wire, as well as the current created in a wire when a magnet moves past it.
