Earth's Field Coil (H 6)


Keyword: Induced Current

Demonstration Description:
A 42-turn coil with a diameter of 57 cm. is free to rotate about its axis. When rotated by hand, a current is produced in the coil due to the earth's field. This is not a very clean signal and the orientation of the coil does not seem to matter.
