P3 - Electromagnetism
P3.3.1 - The Motor Effect
- Placing a wire with a current in a magnetic field (between two magnets) makes the wire experience a force called "The Motor Effect".
- This force is at its maximum if it is held at 90 degrees to the magnetic field.
- The force can increase by:
- Increasing the strength of the magnetic field
- Increasing the size of the current.
- The direction of the force is reversed if…
