The EJS Helmholtz Coils Model shows a the magnetic field between two circular coils of wire. The default configuration, known as a Helmholtz coil, sets the separation distance D equal to the coil radius R. These values produce a nearly uniform magnetic field B between the coils
The Helmholtz Coils Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_ntnu_em_HelmholtzCoils.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
Please note that this resource requires
at least version 1.5 of
Helmholtz Coils source code.
The source code zip archive contains an XML representation of the Helmholtz Coils Model. Unzip this archive in your EJS workspace to compile and run this model using EJS. download 24kb .zip
