Website Detail Page

written by Ed Eckel
This site includes a series of lab activities that demonstrate the concept of electromagnetic induction.  The activites vary in complexity, but all of them can be performed using simple electronic lab equipment such as magnetometers and voltmeters.  Each activity lists the materials needed, what instructions to give to the students, and what should happen when they perform the experiments.
