Magnetic Field
and Magnetic
Forces

Two Experiments, Different Scale

(left) electromagnet, (right) permanent magnet

The Behavior of Bar Magnets

attraction and repulsion
dipole or monopole. Always in pairs.

Our Earth Itself Has a Magnetic Field

This field is not very strong but it is consistent
(and convenient).

A Compass Will Align with Fields

The compass will align with
whatever average field is
strongest.
Absent the current-carrying
wire, the compass would align
with the earth's magnetic field.
Oersted experiment: current
can generate magnetic field
and influence the compass.

Examples of Magnetic Fields Figure 20.8

Fields are created in a variety of ways and
observed in a variety of places.

Iron Filings Will Align as a Compass

Does Figure 20.7
Each small filing lines up tangent to the field
lines, allowing a visual demonstration.

B field lines:
1. Always closed loops.
2. No intersect of two lines (loops).
3. Density of the lines is proportional to the strength of the field
4. Direction: arrow points to the test compass north direction
