Sample text

Why? One back-and-forth motion is called an oscillation. The number of oscillations made by the hanging nail varies with the distance you are from the magnetic north or south pole. The slowest oscillation would be at the magnetic equator (the imaginary line between the north and south magnetic poles that divides the earth in half). The oscillations increase as you approach either the north or south magnetic pole. The magnetic lines of force are closer at the poles and thus have a stronger pull on the magnetized nail, causing it to swing faster.

A summary stating the results should be printed at the bottom of the map. Show Time! Simulate the testing of the earth's magnetic field closer to its magnetic poles by placing a magnet near the hanging nail. Count the oscillations of the nail with the magnet at different distances from the nail. Use this experiment as part of your display. Attach the string to a support placed across the top of your project display, with the nail hanging freely in the center of the project.

Check It Out! Like a bar magnet, the earth has a magnetic field around it. This field, called the magnetosphere, protects the earth from powerful space radiation. Read about this protective shield. You could include this information in an oral report and create a diagram showing the shape of the magnetosphere with its tail-like extension trailing outward toward the sun. html 15/11/2004 Document Página 1 de 1 Page 48 12— Dipper Problem How can you follow the direction of magnetic lines of force around a magnet?
