Show an appreciation that a force might act on a current-carrying conductor placed in a magnetic field.
Recall and solve problems using the equation F = BIL sin(theta), with the directions as interpreted by Fleming’s left-hand rule.
Define magnetic flux density and the tesla.
Show an understanding of how the force on a current-carrying conductor can be used to measure the flux density of a magnetic field using a current balance.
Predict the direction of the force on a charge moving in a magnetic field.
*Recall and solve problems using F = BQv sin(theta).
*Describe and analyse deflections of beams of charged particles by uniform electric and uniform magnetic fields.
*Explain how electric and magnetic fields can be used in velocity selection for charged particles.
Sketch flux patterns due to a long straight wire, a flat circular coil and a long solenoid.
Show an understanding that the field due to a solenoid may be influenced by the presence of ferrous core.
Explain the forces between current-carrying conductors and predict the direction of the forces.
