PhET Simulation: Magnet and Compass Relations
Physics Front Related Resources
A comprehensive set of hands-on lab experiments using permanent magnets and electromagnets, most of which can be adapted easily to the secondary science classroom.
Other Related Resources
A closely related simulation to explore how a compass responds to magnetic fields. A bar magnet may be moved about a compass to demonstrate strength-of-field. Remove the bar magnet to see the compass needle point north to the Earth's magnetic pole.
