## Website Detail Page

This page is an introductory multimedia tutorial on magnetic force. Users will explore forces on moving charges in magnetic fields and will solve simple problems to find the magnitude of the force. Materials are formatted in Adobe Flash, with short video clips, animations, and interactive question-and-answer sets.  This segment is part of a full module on magnetism published by the NROC.

Please note that this resource requires Flash.
Editor's Note: These materials could be very useful for students with certain learning disabilities.  The modules are designed to spark student interest through visual appeal and are accompanied by voice narration.

### AAAS Benchmark Alignments (2008 Version)

#### 4. The Physical Setting

4G. Forces of Nature
• 9-12: 4G/H5ab. Magnetic forces are very closely related to electric forces and are thought of as different aspects of a single electromagnetic force. Moving electrically charged objects produces magnetic forces and moving magnets produces electric forces.
• 9-12: 4G/H5c. The interplay of electric and magnetic forces is the basis for many modern technologies, including electric motors, generators, and devices that produce or receive electromagnetic waves.
