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.

This is the full index of interactive Java simulations by the same author on Electricity and Magnetism. This particular collection is devoted to topics typically covered in a second semester introductory physics class.
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.
