This is a virtual experiment to investigate the magnetic field produced by a coil.  The number of turns on the coil can be selected.  The maximum amps and voltage can be selected on the power supply and the actual amps read from a multimeter.


A magnetometer allows the reading of the deflection caused by the magnetic field.


This experiment can also determine the horizontal component of the local magnetic field due to the Earth.
