This site provides an animated interface of electromagnetic devices. The animations break down the processes involved for each device and should help students understand their operation with greater clarity.

What You Need

This website is suitable for all students of Leaving Certificate Physics. It is particularly useful for higher-level students. This site helps students understand the more difficult concepts of electromagnetism with the use of animations. The user may stop and start the animations to help break the concepts down.

Curriculum Addressed

Leaving Certificate Electromagnetism: DC motor; AC generator; electromagnet


This site is best introduced on a data projector for 40 minutes and then the students should browse the site at their own pace.
