Unformatted text preview: field patterns. Put iron filings onto the solenoid, which is set to maximum current, and observe the patterns. Experiment 2: Set up the magnet with its north-pole pointing north. Connect the magnet to the power supply and make the current 0.75 amps. Calibrate and then repeat with the probe reversed. Experiment 3: Vary the current from -0.75 to 0.75 amps. Measure an graph the magnetic field versus current. Measure the magnetic field along the axis of the coil by moving the coil. Experiment 4: The coordinates of the lab are used to measure the three components of the Earth's magnetic field. The maximum-field vector is also measured by adjusting the probe until the largest reading is found....
