Recommended for Elementary through Middle School.
The region around a magnet where magnetic force acts is called a magnetic field. In this experiment, you will map the magnetic field at one-centimeter intervals along a bar magnet.
In this experiment, you will
- Measure and graph magnetic field strength at points along a bar magnet.
- Analyze data.
- Make conclusions about the magnetic field at various points on a bar magnet.
