Unformatted text preview: 5) Place Magnetic Field Sensor in the center of the solenoid. 6) Click Start, record current and magnetic field strength, and click stop. 7) Slowly insert the Magnetic Field Sensor into the solenoid while plotting the field strength. 8) Click Start with the Magnetic Field Sensor just on the outside of the solenoid. 9) Click Keep and the first value for Magnetic Field will appear in the first cell. 10) Move Magnetic Field Sensor 1 cm at a time and click Keep each centimeter. 11) Collect 7 values and click Stop and then click Scale to Fit. Theory Statement By experimentally finding the current (I) through a solenoid with a given number of turns (N), length (L), and using the permeability of free space (µ ), the magnetic field (B) can be determined using the following equation. = B μ0NIL 1 2...
