PHY 132: Current Balance Student’s name: William Herzog Lab partners: Nicole Roberts Date of experiment: 3/27/08 Lab time: Thursday 6:40 TA’s name: Jianheng Liu Abstract: Current needed to create a repulsive magnetic force to counter gravitational force is directly related. More specifically the current squared plotted against weight provides an answer for μ 0.

Objective: The objective of this lab is to better understand magnetic force. It looks at gravitational force versus repulsive magnetic force between anti parallel currents. Procedure: Use a current balance apparatus. The set up the telescope to the correct adjustments. Record the x eq which is the scale reading when the upper bar is at its equilibrium. Put weights on the pan until the bars touch which gives x t . Calculate r. Add masses to the pan for five different measurments between 20 and 120 mg. Each time change the current, I, so that the bar returns to equilibrium. Now record mass and current.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
