This interactive simulation allows users to explore magnetic fields and Faraday's Law. Users can control settings such as magnet strength and position, and use either a compass or a magnetic field meter to measure the magnetic field components, total field, and angle. Faraday's Law is demonstrated through simulations of movable magnets and coils, AC and DC electro-magnets, transformers, and generators.
This simulation is part of a large and growing collection. It has been designed using principles from physics education research and refined based on student interviews.
