Design Investigation

In Physics today students were required to design an investigation that would determine the relationship between the strength of the magnetic field around a current carrying solenoid and the distance from the solenoid.

Students were given the following materials to design their investigation.
  •         Retort stand with bosshead and clam
  •         Mulitmeter
  •         Ammeter
  •         Voltmeter
  •         Compass to detect magnetic field and magnetic field strength detectors
  •         Bar magnets x2
  •         Solenoids approximately 10cm
  •         Power supply
  •         Electronic balance
  •     wires and alligator clips
  •         Ruler
  •         Computer
