### Electricity & Magnetism

1. 1. Electricity &Magnetism T- 1-855-694-8886Email- info@iTutor.comBy iTutor.com
2. 2. Fields and forces The concept of a field is used to describe anyquantity that has a value for all points in space. You can think of the field as the way forces aretransmitted between objects. Charge creates an electric field that creates forceson other charges.© iTutor. 2000-2013.

5. 5. EMF – Electric & MagneticFields Electricity produces two types of fields; an electricfield and a magnetic field called electromagneticfields or EMF. Electric fields are created by the presence of electriccharges and are measured in volts per meter (V/m). An electric field is associated with any device orwire that is connected to a source of electricity,even when a current is not flowing.© iTutor. 2000-2013.

6. 6. Electric fields andelectric force On the Earth’s surface, the gravitational fieldcreates 9.8 N of force on each kilogram of mass. With gravity, the strength of the field is in Newtonper kilogram (N/kg) because the field describes theamount of force per kilogram of mass.© iTutor. 2000-2013.

7. 7. Electric fields andelectric force• With the electric field, the strength is in Newtonper coulomb (N/C).• The electric field describes the amount of force percoulomb of charge.© iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
8. 8. What is a magnet?• If a material is magnetic, it has the ability toexert forces on magnets or other magneticmaterials.• A permanent magnet is a material that keeps itsmagnetic properties even when it is NOT close toother magnets.© iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
10. 10. magnetism The magnetic field of a coil is identical to the field ofa disk-shaped permanent magnet.© iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
11. 11. The force between twomagnets The strength of the forcebetween magnets dependson the distance betweenthem. The magnetic forcedecreases with distancemuch faster than doeseither gravity or theelectric force.© iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
12. 12. The magnetic field All magnets create a magneticfield in the space around them,and the magnetic field createsforces on other magnets. The number of field lines in acertain area indicates therelative strength of the magneticfield in that area. The closer the lines aretogether, the stronger the field. The arrows on the field linesyndicate the direction of theforce© iTutor. 2000-2013.

13. 13. The Magnetic Field of theEarth When you use a compass, thenorth-pointing end of theneedle points toward a spotnear (but not exactly at) theEarth’s geographic north pole. The Earth’s magnetic polesare defined by the planet’smagnetic field. That means the southmagnetic pole of the planet isnear the north geographicpole.© iTutor. 2000-2013.

14. 14. The Magnetic Field of theEarth Depending on where you are, a compass will pointslightly east or west of true north. The difference between the direction a compasspoints and the direction of true north is calledmagnetic declination.After correcting for thedeclination, you rotate thewhole compass until thenorth-pointing end of theneedle lines up with zerodegrees on the ring.The large arrow points in thedirection you want to go.© iTutor. 2000-2013.

15. 15. Electric Current andMagnetism Two wires carrying electric current exert force oneach other, just like two magnets. The forces can be attractive or repulsivedepending on the direction of current in bothwires.© iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
16. 16. Electric Current andMagnetism The magnetic field around a single wire is toosmall to be of much use. There are two techniques to make strongmagnetic fields from current flowing in wires:1. Many wires are bundled together, allowing thesame current to create many times themagnetic field of a single wire.2. Bundled wires are made into coils whichconcentrate the magnetic field in their center.© iTutor. 2000-2013. All Rights Reserved
17. 17. Electric Current andMagnetism The electrons movingaround the nucleus carryelectric charge. Moving charge makeselectric current so theelectrons around thenucleus create currentswithin an atom. These currents create themagnetic fields thatdetermine the magneticproperties of atoms.© iTutor. 2000-2013.

18. 18. Magnetic force on amoving charge The magnetic force on a wire is really due to forceacting on moving charges in the wire. A charge moving in a magnetic field feels a forceperpendicular to both the magnetic field and tothe direction of motion of the charge.© iTutor. 2000-2013.

19. 19. RIGHT HAND RULE It’s a method of determiningthe direction of Force (F),Current (I) or MagneticField (B)The direction of the force canbe deduced from the right-hand rule.If you bend the fingers of yourright hand as shown, yourthumb, index, and middlefinger indicate the directionsof the force, current andmagnetic field.© iTutor. 2000-2013.
