## What strengthens a magnetic field?

You can strengthen the electromagnetic field generated by such an apparatus in a few simple ways. Increase the current running through the wire coils or solenoid. The stronger the current running through the wire, the stronger the magnetic field. Add an iron core to the wire coil.

## How would you strengthen the magnetic field created by a current in a wire?

When there is a current in a wire, a circular magnetic field is produced around the wire….The strength of the magnetic field around a solenoid can be increased by:

1. increasing the number of turns on the coil.
2. increasing the current.
3. placing an iron core inside the solenoid.

## What generates the magnetic field in a current carrying wire?

Answer: The correct answer is “movement of charged particles”. Explanation: A current carrying wire generates the magnetic field around it.

## What factors affect the strength of a magnetic field around a current carrying wire?

When a current flows through a conducting wire a magnetic field is produced around the wire. The strength of the magnetic field depends on the current through the wire and the distance from the wire.

## What are three ways to strengthen a magnetic field?

Electromagnets

1. wrapping the coil around a piece of iron (such as an iron nail)
2. adding more turns to the coil.
3. increasing the current flowing through the coil.

## Does current affect electromagnet?

The magnitude of current is proportional to the strength of the magnetic field it produces. This fact is well illustrated by the Biot-Savart law or the Ampere’s circuital theorem. This naturally implies that the current is directly proportional to the strength of the electromagnet.

## What causes the magnetic field in electromagnets?

An electromagnet is a type of magnet in which the magnetic field is produced by an electric current. A current through the wire creates a magnetic field which is concentrated in the hole, denoting the center of the coil. The magnetic field disappears when the current is turned off.

## What makes the magnetic field of a wire stronger?

μ0 is the permeability of free space which have constant value μ0 = 4 * π * 10^ (-7) [T * m / A]. You can see that the higher current flowing through the wire and the closer we are to the wire the stronger produced magnetic field is. The Earth and the other planets and stars in our universe act like huge magnets.

## How does a current affect a magnetic field?

Magnetic field and current carrying wires When there is a current in a wire, a circular magnetic field is produced around the wire. This magnetic field can deflect the needle of a magnetic compass. The strength of the magnetic field is greater:

## What is the magnetic force on a wire carrying a current?

A wire carrying a 30.0-A current passes between the poles of a strong magnet that is perpendicular to its field and experiences a 2.16-N force on the 4.00 cm of wire in the field. What is the average field strength? 8.

## Can a magnetic field move a moving wire?

Figure 1. The magnetic field exerts a force on a current-carrying wire in a direction given by the right hand rule 1 (the same direction as that on the individual moving charges). This force can easily be large enough to move the wire, since typical currents consist of very large numbers of moving charges.
