‘WESTMINSTER’ ELECTROMAGNETIC KIT

The Westminster approach to teaching electromagnetism has proven to be successful, motivational, stimulating and educationally valuable.

This is a comprehensive students’ kit containing all the essential apparatus fr the basic experiments in magnetism.

The complete kit is a standard pack, sufficient for 8 students.

The kit includes:

  • 8 Anisotropic alloy magnets
  • 8 Anisotropic ceramic ferrite magnets
  • 4 Steel magnet yokes
  • 6 Plotting compasses
  • 4 Hardboard formers for compasses
  • 1 Bottle of iron fillings
  • 4 Iron filling dispensers
  • 4 Pairs of C-cores
  • 4 C-Core clips
  • 4 Aluminium rings
  • 4 Aluminium rings, split
  • 4 Support bases
  • 4 Armature with axle tubes
  • 8 Split pins
  • 16 Rivets
  • 4 Axle shafts
  • 1 Latex rubber tubing
  • 4 Wooden former for coils
  • 4 Cello tape rolls
  • 4 Reels of PVC insulated wire, 26SWG
  • 4 White paste board sheets
  • 4 Plain postcard sheets
  • 1 Reel of white cotton thread
  • 4 each of Carbon resistances, 100Ω and 10 Ω, 0.5W each.
  • 10 MES bulbs
  • 5 Neon bulbs
  • 8 MES lamp holders
  • 1 Each of a wooden clamp and a wooden block.

The kit is useful for a number of experiments, such as those involving the:

  • General investigation of magnets
  • Investigation of the magnetic field due to magnets
  • Investigation of the magnetic field due to electric current, including simple galvanometers, electromagnets and vibrators
  • Forces on currents in magnetic fields including: moving coil ammeter; simple electric motor construction and use; electromagnetic induction- the dynamo.
  • Alternating current: transformers and power line
  • Eddy current and damping and
  • Force between currents.
