Air Core Solenoid, 10A Max
Item # P8-6500
Perfect for all classroom experiments requiring an external magnetic field, and great for studying induction and the rate of change of magnetic flux through a coil.
This sturdy air-core copper solenoid is perfect for any classroom experiments requiring an external magnetic field. Insulated copper wire is wound around a plastic coil, and brass binding posts are attached to the end plates of the solenoid. Students can measure relationships between electricity and magnetism over a wide range of currents. Ensure the power supply used does not exceed 10A intermittently or 5A continuously.
"I have found it indispensable for demonstrating magnetic forces produced by electric current and the fundamental principle of electro-magnetic induction. The dramatic effect of the magnetic field produced by the solenoid on a compass needle is easy to produce. Likewise, my students have gained a deeper understanding and appreciation for how electricity is generated. Using the coil, a bar magnet and a galvanometer the principle of electromagnetic induction is demonstrated for all to see."
