written by Joe Ferguson and Jack Denson
published by the MSU Department of Physics and Astronomy
This item is an introductory lab that examines several aspects of electricity and magnetism.  The lab contains three sections  that explore the basic properties of magnets, how electromagnets work, how simple electric motors work, and a take home activity in which students create a circuit diagram of their home.  Materials are inexpensive and readily available.  This item is part of a larger collection of online physics labs by the authors.
