This is a collection of more than 60 Java tutorials on concepts, laws, and historical milestones associated with electricity and magnetism. The simulations range in complexity from very simple to advanced. Topics include models for electricity, DC current, AC current, capacitance, electromagnetic induction, magnetic field around a wire, Lorentz force, Lissajous figures, transformers, and more. The simulations of historical instruments help users visualize the work of pioneers in electricity and magnetism.

Mag Lab U is part of a large collection of web-based educational materials for K-20, developed by the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
