Unformatted text preview: I 1 and D were not taken into consideration. How would these errors contribute to your final results? Looking down at the coils, their magnetic field is (out of) o r ( into) the coils. Check one. Use the value of I 1 to calculate the Earth’s magnetic field. Compare it to the literature value that may be obtained from the Internet or physics handbooks. What is the direction of the Earth’s magnetic field; into the floor or out of the floor? Why is it imperative to keep the tilt angle and the direction of the coils fixed during the experiment? 4...
