seismometer

Seismometer The magnetic field sensor responds to magnetic fields. We can use this idea, together with a metre rule damped with a sand bag, to demonstrate how a seismometer might function. If the apparatus...

magnetic fields

Magnetic fields The magnetic field sensor responds to a magnetic field. In this experiment the sensor is moved through Helmholtz coils and the variation in field is measured. Apparatus Clamp stand, Helmholtz coils, leads,...

magnetic field in a coil

You can ‘see’ magnetic fields using iron filings. You can measure the strength of magnetic fields using a magnetic field sensor connected to a computer. How, for example, does that field vary as you...

magnetic field – Hall probe

Used like a wand and moved in magnetic fields. Interesting in the way it measures the unseen. Has a niche use in applications showing magnetic field changing over time or some electrical variable.
