5 Electricity and Magnetism Files

A share-a-thon is a place where teachers can voluntarily upload their files for other teachers to use. When a teacher submits a file, it is catalogued and placed into a database. To view more materials from the topic above or from different branches of science click here.

The continued strength of this site depends on teacher contributions! Please help make this site stronger by submitting a file!

magnetism and current flow
These animations to try to show the right hand rule for relating current, flow, magnetic field direction and moving charge. This topic is more for AP physics since it includes lenzs law but a pretty good start demonstrated basic magnetism.

More magnetism and right hand rule
These animations to try to show the right hand rule for relating current, flow, magnetic field direction and moving charge. This topic is more for AP physics since it includes lenzs law but a pretty good start demonstrated basic magnetism.

Simple magnet demonstration
A simple animation of paramagnetic and diamagnetic materials which shows why some materials can be magnetized but are not. They can become magnetized if possible. It also helps to explain why magnetic direction is maintained when the magnet is broken.

Electroscope
This one is designed to show induction and charging effect of an electroscope. I use PVC and a rabbit so I only get negative charge induction and charge but at least it shows the charges which are otherwise invisible.

electrostatic precipitator
One of the most common uses of electrostatic fields is the precipitator. It can collect dust particles in even high flow environments such as coal burning power plants. Turn on charge grid and discuss the effect of the field on the charge
