Summary of InvestigationAn investigation was carried out to find out the relationship between the force created in a wire or solenoid when current flowed through it and the force from gravity This was investigated by connecting a solenoid up to a variable power pack and then placing a light ring of either copper or aluminum around the solenoid When the current flows through the solenoid a magnetic force created from the solenoid should make the ring jump up or levitate When carrying out the experiment the assumption was made that there will be some movement from the ring when current starts flowing through the solenoid and thus a magnetic field will be present However the results of the experiment did not back up this assumption in any way No magnetic force was observed in any of the experiments carried outIntroductionElectromagnetism is the study of the relationships between magnetism and electricity It was found by Hans Oersted that when an electric current flows in a wire the current creates a magnetic force around this wire It is also known that a solenoid produces a considerably large amount of magnetic force when a current flows through it diagram 11 By using a solenoid and some small light rings of copper and aluminum it is said that the ring when placed over the solenoid when current is flowing will jump up and sometimes levitate if the force of the magnetic field equals that of the earths gravitational forceAimThe main objective of this experiment is to investigate the relationship between gravitational energy and electric and magnetic energy This will be achieved by attempting to suspend a light ring of copper andor aluminum around a solenoid with a current passing through it The only presumption is that if the ring is unable to be levitated due to lack of power there will still be movement and the ring will jump up from the base of the solenoidMethodThe circuit used
