Experiment Overview

In this experiment, students will learn about electromagnets, how they are constructed and some of the factors affecting the strength of an electromagnet.

Students are required to learn about electromagnets in great detail in year 12. However, students from years 7 to 10 are required to learn about energy transformation and transfer; this activity will shed light on how energy can be transformed from electrical energy to magnetic energy.

 This is a very engaging investigation as it provides an opportunity for the students to have a hands-on experience that involves energy transformations and magnetism. This is also a flexible and versatile experiment, and the teacher may adjust the experiment to suit their students’ learning abilities.
