Objectives of the FTCE Physics: Magnetism Chapter
The FTCE Physics exam is intended to gauge students' readiness to be certified to teach physics in the state of Florida. The test constitutes around 18 questions addressing the joint subjects of magnetism and electricity. In our Magnetism chapter, each lesson is accompanied by a related quiz that offers you the opportunity to discern your level of understanding of the lesson's concepts and examine the kinds of questions presented on the actual exam.
The physics FTCE comprises around 90 questions, all of which are multiple-choice. They involve different types of framing and may inquire about the data portrayed in a graph or chart, the most appropriate response to a case study or situation, or the direct answer to a problem. Scientific calculators may be utilized and are provided at the test center.
1. Magnetic Force: Definition, Poles & Dipoles
You're probably familiar with magnets, but have you ever stopped to consider how they work? In this lesson, we'll look at the root of magnetism and some of the fundamental properties of magnets.
2. What is a Magnetic Field?
Magnetic fields fill the space around all magnets, but they're impossible to detect with our own senses. We'll use a common tool to map out a magnetic field and then discuss ferromagnetic materials to see how a magnetic field can be used to create new magnets.
3. How Magnetic Fields Are Created
Have you ever wondered how magnetic fields are created? In this lesson, we'll discuss the very simple answer to this question and look at how electric current can be used to make electromagnets, which have many everyday applications.
4. How Magnetic Forces Affect Moving Charges
A magnetic field exerts a force on a moving charged particle in ways that you might not expect. In this lesson, we're going to look at the direction of this force and the factors that affect its strength.
5. Force of a Magnetic Field on a Current: Formula & Application
Electricity and magnetism are so closely related that they are used in the same word, electromagnetism. In this lesson, we will explore how a magnetic field exerts a force on current.
6. Electromagnetic Induction: Definition & Variables that Affect Induction
We use electromagnetic induction every day, but do you have any idea what it is? In this lesson, we'll discuss this everyday phenomenon, the factors that affect its strength and its most common applications.
7. Faraday's Law of Electromagnetic Induction: Equation and Application
Electromagnetic induction allows us to induce voltage with the movement of a magnetic field. Credited to Michael Faraday, this discovery was not only groundbreaking at the time, but it has since led to many applications in everyday life.
8. Lenz's Law, Magnetic Flux and Motional EMF
Did you know that you can produce electricity by simply moving a magnet? In this lesson, learn more about electromagnetic induction and how electricity is generated.
9. Electric Motors & Generators: Converting Between Electrical and Mechanical Energy
Both generators and electric motors are common devices in everyday life, but how do they work and what is the difference between them? In this lesson, we'll explore both of them, which may produce different results but are actually more similar than they may seem.
10. What is Solenoid? - Definition, Uses & Examples
In this lesson, you will learn what a solenoid is, how it relates to electromagnets, and how it is used in a few real-life situations. A short quiz will follow.
