Part of the MIT TEAL/Studio Physics Project, this web page contains a set of 3-D simulations relating to magnetic field. Each of the visualizations was developed to supplement the MIT Physics 8.02 course in calculus-based Electricity and Magnetism. Topics for this section include magnetic field of both a moving positive charge and a moving negative charge, charges moving in a circle in a magnetic field, ring of current, two wires in parallel, two wires in series current-carrying rings, earth's magnetosphere, current-carrying wire in a constant field, and more.

In addition, the TEAL project has made course notes, labs, and presentations available as part of its Open Courseware Repository:
MIT Open Courseware: Electricity and Magnetism
