In this learning episode, from the Institute of Physics, students look at how a magnetic field can be quantified by measuring the force on a conductor. It illustrates how Flemming's left hand rule can be used to find the direction of the force. The activities include: 

  • investigating the relationship between force on a conductor, length of conductor, current and flux density
  • factors affecting the force on a conductor
  • definitions and calculations
