Electric Current in a Wire Series

The following three animations build on the idea that a flow of electrons creates a magnetic field around the wire in which they flow. If you then bend this wire you get field effects which can build to form a classical shaped NS magnet. We can turn the magnet on and off which is useful and also produces a lightweight magnet which can can control the field and field strength. It is all based on the right hand grip rule or “Curl”
