Grades 9-12: Through numerical and graphical analysis, students find the direction of magnetic force on a wire and relate this force to the wire's length as well as its current.
PHYSICAL SCIENCES (Grades 9-12)
Students determine the direction of the magnetic force on the wire, allowing them an opportunity to experience the right-hand rule. Students also determine the relationship between the length of the current-carrying wire in the magnetic field and magnetic force and between the current in the wire and the magnetic force. Students gain valuable experience in gathering data, calculations, graphing and graphical interpretation. Optional extension activities include exploring the effect of the angle between the current and the field and mapping the magnetic field in space.
