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.
This is part of a collection of similar simulation-based student activities.
Please note that this resource requires Java.

Boston University Physics Applets: Magnetic Field Demonstration 2:
Is Part Of Boston University Physics Applets: Second Semester
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.relation by Caroline Hall
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.relation by Caroline Hall
