Objectives: To study magnetic fields generated by a square shape current carrying coil. Experimental Procedure: First the length of the side of the coil was measured. Then, the compass was positioned so that the needle was perpendicular to the plane of the coil. A current was then applied and the results were noted. The coil was then turned 180 degrees and then a current was applied again and the needles response was again noted. The coil was then positioned so that the compass was parallel to the plane of the coil. The current was then increased and the needles response was noted. Then the pre-set experiment file for magnetic fields was opened and measurements of the needle deflection versus the current in the coil were taken. In graphical analysis, a plot of
