Physics 320 Experiment 9 Magnetic Field of a Permanent Magnet DATA SHEET Name: __________________ Bill Zacharias Date: 6/6/2010 ___________ Prediction 1. How does the magnitude of the magnetic field change as the distance from the magnet changes? As the distance of the magnet increases the magnetic field will decrease. Data 2. Record the equation of your fit and the scale factor here. Equation of Fit Scale Factor (A) Inverse square fit 1.21+/- .054 3. Paste a copy of your magnetic-field versus distance graph here.

Physics 320 Experiment 9 continued Questions 4. Does the magnetic field strength increase or decrease as the distance from the magnet is increased? The magnetic field strength decreases as the distance of the sensor from the magnet increases. 5. Is the relationship between magnetic field strength and distance linear?

Unformatted text preview: As the linear distance increases, the magnetic field strength decreases. 6. Based on the results of the curve fit in the statistics area, what is the relationship between the magnetic field strength and the distance from the magnet? Between 2.5 cm and 5 cm the magnetic field held at a more constant rate. The magnets magnetic field had a constant force on the sensor, this would be similar to the effect that moon has on the earth or vice versa. 7. Did your fit work for those data points that were closest to the magnet? Explain. No because the slope of the closet magnetic field readings drops dramatically at different rates than the data points after 2.5 cm Phys320 Lab Page 2 Experiment 9...
