ENGS 120 Electromagnetic Fields and Waves
Notes on Equipment Required for Lecture Demos.
Charles Sullivan, Assistant Professor, Thayer School of Engineering, Dartmouth
Simulation of Ferromagnetism by a Compass Array
Paramagnetism and Diamagnetism, using Pasco
Variable Gap Magnet, Pasco
Magnetic Force Accessory Kit, and optionally the goosneck
Induction, using large coil, Cenco
meter, and the Pasco
Variable Gap Magnet.
Lenz's law: using large coil, banana patch cord, and Cenco
meter. Observe that coil doesn't heat up.
Force between coil and aluminum plate (partial levitation). Requires
large coil, adapter from banana to line cord, and a thick plate of Al about
2-3 feet square.
True magnetic levitation with superconducting disk. Kit
plus dewar of LN.
Surfaces for integration of flux through a two-turn coil. Set of
examples in my office.
