How To Demonstrate Magnetism and Electromagnetism

In this video, Paul Cook showcases the Force on a Conductor Apparatus from Lascells and how it illustrates the effect of a current flowing in a conductor within a magnetic field.

Featuring 4mm sockets for easy connection, when a current of up to 8A is applied, the crossbar responds by rolling under the influence of the electromagnetic force. The apparatus includes clearly labelled magnet poles and serves as a new version of a classic piece of equipment for demonstrating concepts such as Fleming’s left-hand rule and the presence of a magnetic field around a current-carrying wire.

A low-voltage bench power supply unit is required for operation.
