Pooja Parekh Magnetic Forces I PHY 134 Section 2 Abstract The purpose of this lab was to determine the vertical component of Earth’s Magnetic  Field through measurement of a current-carrying wire that is stretched between two supports.  The formula for magnetic force is F= l IxB. A 20 g mass was attached to the end of the wire, thus  resulting in mechanical tension equivalent to T(x)=cos =T θ 0 . The maximum deflection is  calculated using the equation y max =(IB vert /T 0 )/.5L 2 . The current will be measured to find y max  to  determine B vert . Earth’s magnetic field is caused by the dynamo theory in which the motion of a  conductive body in the presence of a magnetic field regenerates the magnetic field. The liquid  iron in Earth’s outer core is what drives the dynamo action. The convection of molten iron along

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
