Magnetism 4Electricity and Magnetism Related
Hans Christian OerstedDiscovered that an electric current causes a magnetic fieldHow? Connected a series circuit and turned on the power. A nearby compass moved!This Proved there was an electromagnetism link
Michael FaradayDiscovered that a magnetic field causes an electrical current.How? Moved a wire through the magnetic field of a strong magnet. Found that an electric current was produced in the wire.
ElectromagnetTemporary magnet made by wrapping a current carrying wire around an iron core.More coils = ____________More current = ____________More powerMore power
GalvanometerMoving coil electric current detector.The amount of deflection of a needle attached to the coil is proportional to the current passing through the coil.
GalvanometerThe accuracy of moving coil meters is dependent upon..Having a uniform and constant magnetic field
