(Chapter 7) Magnetism and Electromagnetism

How can you tell if a material is magnetic? Which metals are magnetic?
If it can repel another magnet. Iron, steel, cobalt and nickel are all magnetic.
1 of 12
What is a magnetic field?
The area around a magnet in which a magnetic force is acting, it comes out of the south and goes in the north pole.
2 of 12
What is a permanent magnet? An induced magnet?
A permanent magnet produces its own magnetic field, it always has a north and a south pole. An induced magnet only becomes magnetic when placed in a magnetic field.
3 of 12
What is flux density?
The number of magnetic field lines in a given area.
4 of 12
How do you calculate the force on a wire?
F=BIL, Force (N) = Magnetic Flux Density (T) x Current (A) x Length (m)
5 of 12
What is the left hand rule?
thuMb: Movement, First finger: Field, seCond finger: Current.
6 of 12
What is induced potential? How does it happen?
The potential difference produced by a wire as it is moved across a magnetic field, this happens as it is breakig magnetic field lines which pushes electrons along the wire.
7 of 12
What is induced current?
If a wire is part of a complete circuit, the potential difference will cause a current in the circuit.

How does a moving-coil loudspeaker work?
See diagram
10 of 12
How do you increase the magnetic fireld of a solenoid?
Using a larger current, using more turns of wire, putting the turns closer together and putting a soft iron core through the centre.
11 of 12
How does a car motor battery work?
Igniton switch turned > Iron core becomes magnetised > A current flows through solenoid > Motor is connected to the battery > Solenoid moves to connect to the contacts > Engine is fully connected.
