STATION 2:

Little Compasses

Connect the two ends of the wire across the battery and observe compasses.
What happens when the wire is c
onnected? What about when you disconnect the wire?

Which of the above
-
listed MAGNETIC/ELECTROMAGNETIC PHENOMENA best explains your
observations?

STATION 3:

Electromagnet

Connect the two ends of the wire across the battery and observe the assembly’s
ability to pick up clips. Can the assembly p
ick up clips without the battery?

Now try the Electromagnet with more coils. How does

increasing the number of turns affect

its ability to pick
up clips?

Now try changing the voltage in an electromagnet. How does increasing the voltage affect its abil
ity to pick
up clips?
