  • Poles and dipoles of magnetic force fields
  • Creating magnetic fields
  • Effects of magnetic forces on motion
  • Faraday's Law
  • Variables that affect electromagnetic induction
  • Conductor to conductor electromagnetic induction
  • Transformers

Complete the assessments that accompany these lessons to further improve your comprehension of the material. Use the worksheets to fortify your retention of the information, and use your quiz results to find out what topics you don't fully understand. Improve your understanding of these topics by returning to the lessons via video tags or the lesson transcripts.

OAE Physics: Electromagnetism - Chapter Objectives

The objective of the OAE Physics exam is to test your mastery over the field of physics through a series of 150 computer-administered multiple-choice questions, administered in a 3 hour and 45 minute testing session. Twenty-two percent of the material covered by this exam belongs to the domain of Electricity and Magnetism with some questions on magnetic fields and electromagnetic induction. The lesson videos, worksheets and quizzes of this chapter have been composed to aid in your review of these topics so that you can be prepared for questions about them on test day.

Magnetic Force: Definition, Poles & Dipoles

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.

What is a Magnetic Field?

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.

How Magnetic Fields Are Created

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.

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.

Faraday's Law of Electromagnetic Induction: Equation and Application

5. 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.

Electromagnetic Induction: Definition & Variables that Affect Induction

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.

Electromagnetic Induction: Conductor to Conductor & Transformers

7. 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.
