Using Electricity and Magnetism - What Is Electromagnetism? Electric Current and Magnetism An electric current produces a magnetic field. Slide 2 Using Electricity and Magnetism - What Is Electromagnetism? Solenoids The magnetic field produced by a current has three distinct characteristics. The field can be turned on or off, have its direction reversed, or have its strength changed. Slide 3 Using Electricity and Magnetism - What Is Electromagnetism? Solenoids The magnetic field around a solenoid resembles that of a bar magnet. Slide 4 Using Electricity and Magnetism - What Is Electromagnetism? Electromagnets A doorbell rings as the magnetic field of an electromagnet turns on and off. Slide 5 Using Electricity and Magnetism - What Is Electromagnetism? Electromagnets Electromagnets are used to lift heavy objects. A switch is turned on in the crane so that a current is produced in the electromagnet. Slide 6 Using Electricity and Magnetism Electricity, Magnetism, and Motion Electrical Energy and Motion When a wire with current is placed in a magnetic field, electrical energy is transformed into mechanical energy. Slide 7 Using Electricity and Magnetism Generators A generator uses motion in a magnetic field to produce an electric current. - Electricity From Magnetism
