Chladni plates - cymatics

Learn about the interaction between magnetic fields and electrical currents with this Current Scale experiment. Students will measure the forces between a current carrying wire and two parallel magnet plates while varying parameters such as: current length, current polarity, angle.


Topics covered in this experiment:

  • Current & Magnetism

  • Lorentz force 

  •  Biot–Savart law


The kit includes:

  •  Digital Scale

  •  Mount for current-carrying wire

  •  2x Current carrying wire

  •  parallel magnet plates

  •  Experiment manual
