Website Detail Page

written by Andrew Duffy
technical implementer: Wolfgang Christian
This web page is an interactive physics simulation on magnetic fields and forces.  The user can create a magnetic field and place in it current carrying wires.  The simulation will display the field these wires create, and the forces they experience.  Double-clicking the mouse at any point on the field will produce a field line passing through that point.  

This item is part of a larger collection of introductory physics simulations developed by the author.  See Related items on this page for a link to the full collection of simulations on Electricity and Magnetism by the author.

Please note that this resource requires Java.

Accompanies Boston University Physics Applets: Magnetic Field Demonstration

This is the companion applet, "Magnetic Field Demonstration", in which users can add currents coming into or out of a simulated grid and see the fields created.  Included is a selection of pre-created fields, including bar magnets, loops, opposing magnets, and coils.
