Exploring Electricity and Magnetism


Exploring Electricity and Magnetism / Physics / Grade 10 / Faraday's Law

Introduction: In this module, students will build simple motors from a AA battery, and length of wire, a nail or screw, and a strong magnet. These motors are easy to assemble, and can readily be manipulated to explore the role of magnetic field, direction of current, etc on output. Use this module to introduce students to Faraday's Law, or to reinforce already learned concepts in electricity and magnetism.
