Faraday's Electromagnetic Lab simulation

Topics

  • Faraday's Law
  • Magnetic Field
  • Magnets

Sample Learning Goals

  • Predict the direction of the magnetic field for different locations around a bar magnet and an electromagnet.
  • Compare and contrast bar magnets and electromagnets.
  • Identify the characteristics of electromagnets that are variable and what effects each variable has on the magnetic field's strength and direction.
  • Relate magnetic field strength to distance quantitatively and qualitatively.
  • Identify equipment and conditions that produce induction.
  • Compare and contrast how both a light bulb and voltmeter can be used to show characteristics of the induced current.
  • Predict how the current will change when the conditions are varied.
