SC 2014 Semilab: Electromagnetism Made Simple

by Boris Podobedov

This semilab will introduce students to some basic principles of Electricity and Magnetism (E&M).

These will be illustrated through numerous demonstrations and hands-on experiments. For instance each student will get to build his/her own electric motor and a counterfeit money detector. Students will get to work with basic electrical test and measurement gear such as mulitimeters, oscilloscopes, etc. They will also learn how to “guestimate” the magnitude of some basic E&M effects.
