Unformatted text preview: Physics 320 Experiment 8 Magnetic Field of a Solenoid DATA SHEET Name: Bill Zacharias Date: 6/6/2010 Prediction 1. How does the magnetic field in the center of a solenoid depend on the current through the solenoid? The greater the current the greater the magnetic field. There should be a current for a magnetic field. Data 2. Record the number of turns and the length of your solenoid in the table below. Calculate the turns per length. 1 . 1 . Number of loops of wire: 2 . 2 . 230 3 . 3 . Length of solenoid (m): 4 . 4 . .065 5 . 5 . n turns per length(m- 1 ): 6 . 6 . 3538 3. Paste a copy of your magnetic-field versus current graph here. Run #1 is going through the negative side of the solenoid Run #2 is going through the positive side of the solenoid. Phys320 Lab Page 1 Experiment 8 Physics 320 Experiment 8 continued 4. Record the slope and the y-intercept from the fit to the data in the table below. Calculate the turns per length of the solenoid from the slope....
