Who's it for?
This chapter of our SAT Physics Tutoring Solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about magnetism to prepare for the subject test. This resource can help students, including those who:
- Struggle with understanding magnetic forces and fields, poles and dipoles, electromagnetic induction, conductors and transformers, Faraday's law, Lenz's law or any other magnetism topic
- Have limited time for studying
- Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
- Prefer learning science visually
- Find themselves failing or close to failing their magnetism unit
- Cope with ADD or ADHD
- Want to excel on the SAT physics subject test
- Don't have access to their science teacher outside of class
Why it works:
- Engaging Tutors: We make learning about magnetism simple and fun.
- Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
- Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live physics tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
- Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about magnetism on the go!
- Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and re-watch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.
- Review magnetic force and properties of magnets.
- Understand what a magnetic field is and how it's created.
- Find out how moving charges are affected by magnetic forces.
- Learn the variables that affect electromagnetic induction.
- Study applications for Faraday's law and Lenz's law.
1. Magnetic Force: Definition, Poles & Dipoles
A magnetic force is produced when electrons are moving and many become magnets themselves. Discover more about magnetic forces, the root of magnetism, and monopoles and dipoles.
2. What is a Magnetic Field?
A magnetic field is created when magnets are in the same space as one another, creating a force. Learn more about a magnetic field, how to detect it with a compass, and ferromagnetic Materials.
3. How Magnetic Fields Are Created
Magnetic fields are generated when charged particles move around. Explore more about magnetic fields, their source, current carrying conductors, and electromagnets and how they act.
4. How Magnetic Forces Affect Moving Charges
A charged particle that moves through a magnetic field will be exposed to and affected by a particular force. Discover more about the effects of force on a moving charge, why relative motion is important, and the direction and strength of force.
5. Electromagnetic Induction: Definition & Variables that Affect Induction
Electromagnetic induction involves altering a magnetic field can produce a voltage and is utilized in many different applications. Explore more about electromagnetic induction, including its applications and the variables that affect induction.
6. Electromagnetic Induction: Conductor to Conductor & Transformers
Electromagnetic induction is the production of electromotive force by moving a magnetic field across an electric conductor. Learn more about mutual inductance, its applications, and transformers.
