Main Document

Helmholtz Coils 

written by Fu-Kwun Hwang and Wolfgang Christian
edited by Robert Mohr

The EJS Helmholtz Coils Model shows a the magnetic field between two circular coils of wire.  The default configuration, known as a Helmholtz coil, sets the separation distance D equal to the coil radius R.  These values produce a nearly uniform magnetic field B between the coils
