Experiments in Modern Physics Introductory Lab: Magnetic Field Measurements Rex Tayloe Department of Physics, Indiana University 1/14/03 Last Revised: 9/24/03 Goal Become familiar with operating the MPL 12-inch magnet and measuring and controlling the resulting magnetic field. Introduction The Modern Physics Lab (MPL) is the proud owner of an old, but hearty, regulated magnet capable of maintaining uniform magnetic fields up to about 15 kG. As this magnet (and others) will be used frequently in this class, you will learn how to operate this device and will map out the magnetic field. Equipment 12-inch magnet with power supply and regulation apparatus: This device creates a magnetic field by maintaining a current in two coils. In between the coils, across the pole tips, the field is reasonably uniform (we will determine how uniform). The magnet may be run in "normal" (non-regulating) mode where a current is maintained through the coils. In regulating mode, a
