Magnetism II

Performance Objectives

The student should be able to:

  1. Illustrate magnetic fields and magnetic poles
  2. Explain how to care for a magnet.


Magnetic fields

A magnetic field is a region in space where the influence of a magnet can be felt or detected, magnetic.

It is also a region where it exerts a force on other magnets. It’s a vector quantity.

Properties of magnetic lines of force

  1. They originate from N-pole and end in S-pole
  2. Two magnetic lines of force do not cross each other.
  3. Where the lines of forces are close together, the intensity of the field is greater;.... View More
