Johnson 2 Part I: Theory Object: To study the effects of two opposing magnetic fields that are produced by electromagnetic Helmoltz coils, and how it changes as the distance between the coils and the distance from the sensor. Procedure: The experiment consists of us moving the two coils and then taking the reading that the Vernier magnetic field sensor sends to the computer. The coils are set up with the magnetic fields pointing in the same direction as each other and a constant current, radius and number of turns of wire. The first reading will have the two loops at an equal distance from the sensor. Each reading thereafter will be taken by moving both loops one centimeter to the left. The sensor will remain stationary the whole time. The process of moving and recording will take place for up to a total of 8 readings, or until movement causes contact with the sensor. Useful Equations:
