The Motor Effect Experiment Set F=BIL
The Motor Effect Experiment Set allows students to determine the Force on a Current Carrying Conductor in a Magnetic Field.
The set is suitable for Senior Physics classes.
This set is NOT standalone and needs to be used in conjunction with one of our electricity sets and one of our electronic scales.
The set includes:
2 timber copper rod holders
1 copper rod
1 set North and South magnet holders including super magnets
1 graphite rod (to use as a variable resistor)
2 jumper lead click connectors
1 3d printed loud speaker component
1 length enamelled copper wire to make loud speaker
1 foam insert
1 plastic case (16cm by 16cm by 4cm)
1 downloadable worksheet with basic instructions
The set has a mass of 200 grams
We believe this is the first set of its kind which allow students to quantitatively explore the interaction between a current carrying conductor in a magnetic field in a clear and visual way (Not like the ridiculous and convoluted current balances of old!!)
Syllabus Link - The Motor Effect
Inquiry question: Under what circumstances is a force produced on a current-carrying conductor in a magnetic field?
- investigate qualitatively and quantitatively the interaction between a current-carrying conductor and a uniform magnetic field to establish: (ACSPH080, ACSPH081)
- conditions under which the maximum force is produced
- the relationship between the directions of the force, magnetic field strength and current
- conditions under which no force is produced on the conductor
