FORCE ON A CURRENT-CARRYING CONDUCTOR IN MAGNETIC FIELD SA736

This is a unique apparatus to demonstrate force on a current-carrying conductor in the magnetic field. It consists of a pair of metal rails with 4 mm plugs at their end to connect them to a suitable power supply. A lightweight conducting brass axle with two discs at its ends can rollover the rails. When this axle is placed over the rails, the electrical contact between the two rails is established. The whole arrangement is now subjected to a vertical magnetic field using two bar magnets. When a current is passed, the axle with the discs is subjected to an outward or inward pull depending on the direction of the magnetic field and it rolls over the rails. This phenomenon is also known as the motor effect.
