A collection of guided laboratory activities to

• Explain what inductance is and how it relates to Faraday's Law of induction.

• Calculate the inductance of a solenoid coil.

• Explain what permeability and magnetic susceptibility are.

• Measure AC impedance, and use to determine inductance of a coil.

• Discuss the difference between ferromagnetism, diamagnetism, and paramagnetism.

• Relate diamagnetism to superconductivity.

• Explain how to measure the transition temperature of a superconductor using its diamagnetism.
