The article presents a methodology for teaching the basics of magnetism in which concept-centred experiments (CCEs) made in a home workshop form an integral part. The author has first presented a brief review of the basic principles of magnetism followed by the CCEs that may facilitate this learning process. He has mentioned four experiments, one of which had been published earlier. After a cursory reference to that experiment the author has presented details of the other three experiments, the concepts they illuminate, and the data obtained from these experiments.

EEI- Extended Experimental Investigation


Over the last two decades we have been contributing low-cost concept-forming physics experiments in the areas of mechanics and electromagnetism, most of which had been published in this journal. A round-up of these experiments was also published in this journal under the title "Concept-Centred Experiments in Physics" (CCEs). The present article is a continuation of that dialogue. In this article we would like to present a combination of CCEs and theory that a teacher at the +2 or college level may find useful in his classroom teaching of the fundamentals of magnetism.


A methodology for the basics of magnetism in which extended experimental investigation (EEI) can be done.

A methodology for the basics of magnetism in which extended experimental investigation (EEI) cannot be done.


Aim of this experiment is to present EEI- Extended Experimental Investigation in which we design an experiment involving magnetism.


For this research we have chosen qualitative research methods this type of research methods is a type of scientific research. In general terms, scientific research consists of an investigation that:

• seeks answers to a question

• Systematically uses a predefined set of procedures to answer the question

• collects evidence

• produces findings that were not determined in advance

• produces findings that are applicable beyond the immediate boundaries of the study

Qualitative research shares these characteristics. Additionally, it seeks to understand a given research problem or topic from the perspectives of the local population it involves. Qualitative research is especially effective in obtaining culturally specific information about the values, opinions, behaviors, and social contexts of particular populations.

The Fundamentals

We shall review what we consider to be the fundamentals in the theory of magnetism.

Figure 1. Explaining: Biot-Savart's Law in (a) and (b); Ampere's Law in (c).

Fundamental 1. Magnetism originates due tothe flow of electric currents, which can be externally manifest (i.e., measurable with a meter) as in conduction currents flowing in a metallic wire, or can be internal currents, effectively due to the orientation of the spin and orbital angular momenta of the atomic electrons, as in the case of magnetized ...
