Electromagnetic Activity

In the Pre-activity we needed to use a wire, connect it to the battery by the positive and negative poles and get the compass touching the wire, the arrows of the compass started spinning around because of the electrons that started flowing through the wire very fast and they created some sort of waves surrounding the wire that made the magnet and the arrows inside the compass filled with a lot of electrons that were moving around.

In the main activity we had to take a cable and tangle it spinning the cable thorugh a nail and then trying to pick up clips with the tip of the nail, we made a chart diving the turns of the wire though the mail and the amount of clips lifted. We discovered that with more turns of the wire in the nail the more clips we could lift and we thought it was by all the magnetismo the nail started to acquire.
