Principle

A current which flows through one or two neighbouring straight conductors produces a magnetic field around them. The dependences of these magnetic fields on the distance from the conductor and on the current are determined.

Benefits

  • Four different current conductors allow the observation of the magnetic field in different configurations
  • Experimental setup allows the visualization of the Maxwell Equations
  • No extra calibration needed, Teslameter is calibrated  up to 1 T

Tasks

Determination of the magnetic field

  1. of a straight conductor as a function of the current,
  2. of a straight conductor as a function of the distance from the conductor,
  3. of two parallel conductors, in which the current is flowing in the same direction, as a function of the distance from one conductor on the line joining the two conductors,
  4. of two parallel conductors, in which the current is flowing in opposite directions, as a function of the distance from one conductor on the line joining the two conductors.

What you can learn about
