Essential Vocabulary & Concepts
Picture Core Knowledge or Concept
Mag-Current
Whenever electrons flow , they generate a magnetic field that wraps around the direction of the current.

If you move a magnet near a coil of wire, a electrons begin to flow in the circuit.
This relationship is know as electromagnetism.
solenoid
A solenoid is a coil of wire that increases the electromagnetic effect. The ends of the coil become the north and south poles of the magnetic field.
Domains A solenoid's magnetic field has three properties.
  1. The field can be turned on or off.
  2. Reversing the current reverses the north/south poles.
  3. Increasing the current makes the magnetic field stronger.
electromagnet
Adding a ferromagnetic material inside the coil creates an electromagnet.
An electromagnet can be made stronger by:
  1. Adding more coils.
  2. Increasing the current.
  3. Making the coils closer.
  4. Use a stronger ferromagnetic material.
wire moves in field

When a current-carrying wire is placed in a magnetic field, electrical
energy is converted into mechanical energy.
Generator Moving a magnetic field near a solenoid generates an electrical current.
motor gif
An electric motor is a device that uses an electric current to turn an axle. An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
Samuel Morse
Scientist

Samuel Morse (1791-1872) inventor who improved the telegraph and developed a binary communications method (Morse Code) that is the basis of digital communications today (digital computers& media.)

The telegraph was the 'father' of modern telephones & computers today. It used electro - magnets to communicate 'dots and dashes' over thousands of miles acrossf oceans before wireless radios.
