# Physics - Electricity and Magnetism

### Standard Number: 5.0 Electricity and Magnetism: The students will investigate electricity and magnetism.

Level 1 || Level 2 || Level 3
 At Level 1, the student is able to: 1. analyze a given group of charges for repulsion and attraction. Lorentz Force - This Java applet demonstrates the Lorentz force, exerted on a current-carrying conductor swing in the magnetic field of a horseshoe magnet 2. distinguish between charged particles related to repulsion and attraction. An index of static electricity animations from the Physics Classroom 3. create a simple electromagnet. Electromagnetic Oscillating Circuit - a simulation which deals with an electromagnetic oscillating circuit, consisting of a capacitor and an inductor At Level 2, the student is able to: 1. describe the electric field that fills the space around a charged particle or group of charges. Electric Field from Hyper Physics Using Gauss' law for electric field calculation 2. draw an electric field, given a scenario of charged particles. Magnetic Field of a Straight Current-Carrying Wire - This applet simulates an experiment concerning the magnetic field of a straight current-carrying wire. 3. solve problems of resistance using Ohm's law. Voltage Circuit Simulator - This exercise will help you determine the relationship between voltage (V), amperage (I) and resistance (R). This relationship is called Ohm's Law. Ohm’s Law - This applet shows a simple circuit containing one resistor. In addition there is a voltmeter (parallel to the resistor) and an ammeter (in series with the resistor) Ohm's Law (includes Voltage law and Current law) 4. draw and explain series and parallel circuits. Simple AC Circuits - This Java applet shows a simple circuit consisting of an alternating voltage source and, depending on the selected radio button, a resistor (without inductivity), a capacitor or an ideal coil (without resistance). Combinations of Resistors - an applet illustrating either series or parallel Combinations of Resistors, Inductors and Capacitors - java applet Series Parallel Combinations - simple procedures for reducing the circuit to a simple series or parallel circuit to solve most circuits of interest 5. identify components of series and parallel circuits and solve problems related to voltage, amperage, and resistance. Basic Circuit Structure - explanation from eHow Series and Parallel Circuits - fairly complete explanation from Wikipedia Series and Parallel Circuits - eight page lesson plan from try engineering  Series-Parallel Circuits - Explanation of what a series/parallel circuit is and what components are needed to complete it. 6. build series and parallel circuits and demonstrate how they function. Building Series-Parallel Resistor Circuits - explanation with a large number of good illustrations Building Simple Resistor Circuits - good illustrations included Circuit Construction Kit (DC only) - interactive simulation from The University of Colorado at Boulder Electric Circuits - explanation followed by five questions to check for understanding Electronics Projects: How to Build Series and Parallel Circuits - explanation with good illustrations and pictures from the Dummies series How to Build a Parallel Circuit - [2:39] video explanation Series-Parallel Circuits - explanation includes several self test questions to check for understanding Simple Parallel Circuits - explanation from All About Circuits 7. demonstrate a generated current by electromagnetic induction. Applications of Electromagnetic Induction - somewhat advanced level Electromagnetic Induction - Explanation of how current can be induced in a conductor without making contact. Description of the process of induction. Electromagnetic Induction - explanation from Cliffs Notes Intermediate Electromagnetism and Electromagnetic Induction - twenty four question interactive worksheet At Level 3, the student is able to: 1. describe how current is generated by electromagnetic induction.
