Cutnell & Johnson PHYSICS 6/e
Chapter Twenty One : Magnetic Forces and Magnetic Fields

Motion in an ElectroMagnetic Field

Professor Mark Sutherland, University of Toronto.
/JAVA/electmag/ electmag.html

Control the inital (nonrelativistic) velocity of an electrically charged particle in a (controllable) constant magnet field.

Professor Sutherland has a collection of physics applets and tutorials at fun@learning.physics.

The Vector Cross Product - A JAVA Interactive Tutorial

David McNamara, Alan Middleton, and Eric Schiff, Department of Physics, Syracuse University.

This tutorial teaches the vector cross-product. The ability to change the crossed vectors (A and B) and see how the changes effect the resultant (C) effectively shows how the cross product really works. While I usually get the best JAVA performance on my Mac with Internet Explorer instead of Netscape, this tutorial seems to work better with Netscape.

History of Mass Spectroscopy

by Gary Siuzdak and Jennifer Boydston, The Scripps Research Institute.

A History of Mass Spectrometry is a dynamic, interactive record of significant events in the evolution of the science. Interesting use of a mass spec diagram to show the time line of the development of Mass Spectrometry.

The Mechanical Universe and Beyond

Program 34: Magnetism. Gilbert analyzes the Earth's magnetic field.
Program 35: The Magnetic Field.
Laws of Biot and Savart, force between currents and Ampere's law. Spectroscopy, and atomic models through to Bohr. Thirty-minute on-demand streamed physics lecture / animated presentation hosted by Professor David Goodstein of the California Institute of Technology as part of the Annenberg / CPB series The Mechanical Universe and Beyond.

This site requires cable modem (384K) or better speed connection to the internet and free registration with Annenberg / CPB.

The Great Magnet, the Earth: Commemorating the 400th anniversary of "De Magnete" by William Gilbert of Colchester.

by David P Stern (ret), Lab for ExtraTerrestrial Physics, NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre, Md.

A collection of websites describing the development of science devoted to the study of magnetism, electromagnetism, terrestrial and space magnetism. Also at this site are collections of pages devoted to detailed study of spaceflight and the Earth's magnetosphere, including the Aurorae.

Electric & Magnetic Interactions: The Movies

By Ruth Chabay, NorthCarolina State University.

Short Quicktime 3-D movies intended to accompany Chabay & Sherwood's introductory physics textbook Matter & Interactions II: Electric & Magnetic Interactions. These videos show fields about charges, charge distributions, currents, and electromagnetic waves.
