O: Electromagnetism (Magnetic Forces)
It is expected that students will demonstrate an understanding of the
nature of magnetic fields and
magnetic forces.
It is expected that students will:
O1. state the rules that explain how magnetic poles interact with
each other
O2. determine the direction of the magnetic field lines for a permanent
magnet
O3. use the righthand rule to determine the magnetic field direction
for a currentcarrying wire or a solenoid
O4. determine the direction of the force exerted on a currentcarrying
conductor or a moving charge that is within a magnetic field
O5. solve problems for a currentcarrying conductor placed in a magnetic
field, involving:
O6. solve problems for a charge moving through a magnetic field, involving:
O7. apply the principles of electromagnetism to qualitatively
explain the operation of a cathoderay tube
O8. solve problems for a solenoid, involving:
O9. give examples of practical uses for solenoids in the home
and workplace
