Line 8: Line 10:

The purpose of this laboratory is in Part I to observe the magnetic force on moving electrons due to the magnetic field from a bar magnet. The purpose of Part II is to observe the induction of a voltage in a coil by the change of the magnetic flux through the coil. In Part III the voltage induced in a coil by an alternating current (AC) from a second coil is observed. These two coils are arranged similar to a transformer. The purpose of this laboratory is in Part I to observe the magnetic force on moving electrons due to the magnetic field from a bar magnet.

**Note:** Here the magnetic field which contributes dominantly to the magnetic flux inside the coil is the magnetic field inside the magnet, indicated by the high density of field lines at either end of the bar. The average magnetic field is directed parallel to the axis of the bar and goes straight from the south to the north pole inside the bar.  This is the direction of the magnetic field you are concerned about for this part of the lab.  You are no longer interested in the field outside of the magnet like you were in Part I.  (see the sketch for Part I above) **Note:** Here the magnetic field which contributes dominantly to the magnetic flux inside the coil is the magnetic field inside the magnet, indicated by the high density of field lines at either end of the bar.

-\Insert the bar magnet north pole first from left to right, slowly into the coil and observe the needle deflection. Note whether the needle deflection stays at maximum or falls back to zero when the magnet motion ceases. Then withdraw the magnet slowly from the coil and observe the needle deflection. Note the direction of the needle deflection. Do it a couple of times.+

-==== Induction using an electro-magnet ====+==== B - Induction using an electro-magnet ====

You make an “electro-magnet” by passing a DC current through the smaller coil of the induction set. If you use the right-hand-rule to find the magnetic field lines of this small coil, you will notice that they are identical to the magnetic field lines of the bar magnet. ​ The small coil with a current through it is a magnet with a north and a south pole like the bar magnet. This part of the lab will be exactly the same as Part IIA, except that you simply replace the bar magnet by the electro – magnet as shown below. You make an “electro-magnet” by passing a DC current through the smaller coil of the induction set.

Connect the small coil to the DC power supply as shown. As you did for the large coil, inspect your small coil carefully to get the correct winding of the coil. On Execution Sheet 3 choose the incomplete sketch of the coil with the correct winding as in your set up and draw the wire connections (dashed lines) to the coil. Draw the directions of the current on the wires of the small coil, taking into account how they are connected to the DC power supply (which end of the small coil is connected to the positive terminal of the power supply? the negative terminal?). Use the right-hand-rule (see Ch18 sheet 25) to determine the north pole of the electro-magnet and label it in the sketch. Connect the small coil to the DC power supply as shown.

-Place the small coil inside the large coil with the DC power off. Turn the knobs on the DC power supply to maximum (clockwise). Turn the power on and observe the needle. Note! The needle deflection is very small. If you can hardly see any needle deflection, insert the bar labeled “steel” into the small coil, which enhances the strength of the electro-magnet. After the power has reached a maximum value, check whether the needle stays at maximum deflection or goes back down to zero. Turn the power off and observe the needle. Do this a couple of times.+Place the small coil inside the large coil with the DC power off. Turn the knobs on the DC power supply to maximum (clockwise). Turn the power on and observe the needle.

-From the ratios of the voltages you can calculate the ratio of the number of turns in the two coils. ($\frac{V_{2}}{V_{1}}=\frac{N_{2}}{N_{1}}$ See Ch 19 Sheet 24) +From the ratios of the voltages you can calculate the ratio of the number of turns in the two coils.
