The lesson begins with a demonstration introducing students to the force between two current carrying loops, comparing the attraction and repulsion between the loops to that between two magnets. After formal lecture on Ampere's law, students begin to use the concepts to calculate the magnetic field around a loop. This is applied to determine the magnetic field of a toroid, imagining a toroid as a looped solenoid. (less)

This page provides a set of context-rich physics problems relating to magnetic force and field. Each context-rich problem is based on a real-world situation, and includes both information that is relevant to solving the problem and extraneous information. Strategies for problem solving are not explicitly provided. Each problem is formulated so it is too difficult for one student to solve alone, yet not too difficult for a group to master. This resource is based on the research results of the Minnesota Physics Education Research group. See Related items on this page for a link to the full collection. (less)

This module was written for a first year accelerated or AP physics class. It is intended to provide hands on activities to teach end of the year electricity and magnetism topics including the magnetic force, magnetic moments and torque, the Biot-Savart law, Ampere's Law, and Faraday's Law. During the module, students utilize these scientific concepts to solve the following problem: A nearby hospital has just installed a new Magnetic Resonance Imaging facility, which has the capacity to make a three dimensional image of the brain and other parts of the body by putting a patient into a strong magnetic field. The hospital wishes for its entire staff to have a clear knowledge of the risks involved with working near a strong magnetic field, and a basic understanding of why those risks occur. Your task is to develop a presentation or pamphlet explaining the risks involved, the physics behind those risks, and the safety precautions that should be taken by all staff members. This module is built around the Legacy Cycle, a format that incorporates findings from educational research on how people best learn. (less)

The Magnetic Force Three Wires model investigates the force between long straight current-carrying wires. Initially, the simulation shows a cross-section view of three long straight parallel wires, each on the corner of an equilateral triangle. The wires carry currents that have different magnitudes, and the currents are directed either into or out of the page. The task in this simulation is to rank the wires based on the magnitude of their currents, from largest to smallest. The Magnetic Force Three Wires model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_bu_Three_Wires.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. This is part of a collection of similar tutorial simulations created by the author. (less)

This small group activity is designed to help upper-division undergraduate students practice using the symmetry arguments necessary for Ampere's Law. Students are asked to find the magnetic field using Ampere's Law for radially-varying steady current distributions inside a cylindrical shell and to make explicit symmetry arguments using Proof by Contradiction as part of their solution. The compare and contrast wrap-up discussion focuses on the fact that all examples have zero field inside the shell; smooth and continuous, but different answers within the shell; and look like an infinitesimally thin wire outside the shell. This material is part of the Paradigms in Physics project at Oregon State University. This work promotes the use of active student learning in upper division physics courses. Both learning materials and learning strategies are provided to help both students and instructors. (less)

This study presents and interprets some conceptual difficulties junior-level physics students experience with Ampère's law. We present both quantitative data, based on students’ written responses to conceptual questions, and qualitative data, based on interviews of students solving Ampère's law problems. We find that some students struggle to connect the current enclosed by an Ampèrian loop to the properties of the magnetic field while some students do not use information about the magnetic field to help them solve Ampère's law problems. In this paper, we show how these observations may be interpreted as evidence that some students do not see the integral in Ampère's law as representing a sum and that some students do not use accessible information about the magnetic field as they attempt to solve Ampère's law problems. This work extends previous studies into students’ difficulties with Ampère's law and provides possible guidance for instruction. (less)
