Teacher Recommend

"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 and 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."
