Magnetic Torque - "A New Classic"
The Instrument - *Note: Upgrades are Now available for instruments purchased before 2010
Magnetic Moments Interacting with Magnetic Fields
This instrument is equally at home in an Honors Freshman Lab, an Intermediate Sophomore/Junior physics laboratory and, as an analog for Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, in either a Modern Physics or Advanced Senior Laboratory.
Although every introductory physics textbook discusses the interactions of a current loop with magnetic fields, Magnetic Torque and Magnetic Force are the only teaching apparatus capable of demonstrating such interactions.
Magnetic Torque now comes with the Magnetic Force Balance Kit.
*Significant improvements have been made to the original Magnetic Torque apparatus shown below. We have developed an entirely new pump system which can be installed in your apparatus. Other changes included a new strobe which will improve the accuracy of student measurements. Please read here for the details.
