P5.1 - Fields

Electric & Magnetic Fields - OCR A2 Physics

Define an Electric Field: An electric field is a region in which a charged object experiences a force.
Define Electric Field Strength: The electric field strength at a point is the force exerted by an electric field on one coulomb.
Define Gravitational Field: An area in which objects with mass experience a force.
What is Fleming's Left Hand Rule? Thumb: Force Forefinger: Field Middle finger: Current
What is a Solenoid? A cylindrical coil of wire that acts a magnet whilst carrying an electrical current.
What is 1 Tesla? The magnetic field strength which causes a force of 1N in a wire of length 1m in the field carrying 1A.
What is the Right Hand Grip rule? Thumb: Direction of current Curl of fingers: Direction of field
What is a mass spectrometer? A device that is used to discover what elements are present in a given sample.
What does a mass spectrometer do to find out what elements are present? Atoms of a sample are boiled. Atoms are ionised. A powerful electric field accelerates them. A magnetic field is applied perpendicular to the motion of the particles (the atoms are now deflected). The lighter a particle, the smaller the curve.
What does VIADD stand for? Vaporisation, Ionisation, Accelerate, Deflect, Detection.
What is Induction? The production of an Electromotive Force across a conductor by its relative motion through a magnetic field.
What is Lenz's Law: When a current is induced, it flows in such a way, as to create a magnetic field that opposes the change that created it.
What is Faraday's Law: The EMF induced is proportional to the rate of change of flux.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
