This java simulation illustrates the operation of a metal detector. An animation  shows the creation of a pulsed magnetic field from the detector, the induced currents in a metal object, and the resultant magnetic signal. Text explains the animation. This animation is part of a large collection of tutorial materials on electricity and magnetism and optics.

This resource is part of a larger collection on electricity and magnetism by the same authors.

Additional context for this material is provided by the ComPADRE-SERC Pedagogic Service.
