Biot-Savart’s Law Experiment
- Measuring the magnetic field of a straight conductor and of circular conductor loops as a function of the current.
- Measuring the magnetic field of a straight conductor as a function of the distance from the axis of the conductor.
- Measuring the magnetic field of circular conductor loops as a function of the loop radius and the distance from the loop.
Electric currents generate magnetic fields. Biot–Savart law is an equation describing the magnetic field generated by a constant electric current. It relates the magnetic field to the magnitude, direction, length and proximity of the electric current. In this experiment, we study the magnetic field characteristics in straight conductor and different types of circular coils.
- Multiple coil variants: The equipment comprises of variety of coil to carry out experiment. One can study Biot savart law for a straight conductor, coils of variable length, density and number of turns. All coils are mount on a common horizontal bench and upright system.
- 2-axis Telemeter: The equipment is provided with a telemeter with probes to measure both axial and tangential directions. A square shaft mount is provided for accurate mounting of the probes.
