What is a Magnetic Field?

1. 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.

How Magnetic Fields Are Created

2. 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.

Magnetic Force: Definition, Poles & Dipoles

3. 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.

How Magnetic Forces Affect Moving Charges

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.

The Effect of a Magnetic Field on Moving Charges: Physics Lab

5. The Effect of a Magnetic Field on Moving Charges: Physics Lab

After completing this lab, you will be able to explain the effect of a magnetic field on moving charges, and demonstrate it using circuits and magnets. A short quiz will follow.

What is an Electromagnet? - Definition, Uses & Parts

6. What is an Electromagnet? - Definition, Uses & Parts

In this lesson, you'll learn what an electromagnet is, how it is used in a few real-life situations, and the parts that make it up. A short quiz will follow.

Electromagnetic Induction: Definition & Variables that Affect Induction

7. 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.

Electromagnetic Induction: Conductor to Conductor & Transformers

8. Electromagnetic Induction: Conductor to Conductor & Transformers

Every day, we make use of a special case of electromagnetic induction known as mutual induction. In this lesson, we'll talk about this special phenomenon and how it is used in many common devices.
