Demonstration: a shuttling ping-pong ball serves as a model of ions moving in an electric field.
The aim of this activity is to develop the idea of a magnetic field by engaging pupils in drawing some magnetic field patterns...
Magnetic fields are represented by diagrams which show patterns of magnetic field lines.
A simple way of mapping the rough shape of a magnetic field is to use iron filings. For example, the magnetic field pattern of...
Magnetism is a non-contact force. For example, a magnetic force can be acting on a paper clip when a magnet is nearby but not...
One magnet exerts a force on another. Magnetic field line patterns (see the SPT: Magnetism topic episode 01 for an...
This episode introduces fields, field lines and equipotentials in the context of electric fields. Much of this is revision...
