Magnet Demo

The Shack has installed a 0.67 Tesla magnet in CCIS L2 for demos and display. Weighing 2.5 tons, this magnet was used in physics research to find accurate measurements of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance amplitudes. The magnet was decommissioned after its use in research was complete. Along with the magnet is ferrofluid holder, allowing one to see the strong magnetic field as the iron particles align with it. Additionally, a number of bars of different materials sit by the magnet, allowing passerby to feel the strong force it produces. A paddle wired with LED’s can be powered through induction by waving it through the strong magnetic field. Come by The Shack and try it out!
