GUIDES  
1  Magnetic Fields Descriptions and equations for magnetic field strength near a currentcarrying wire, loop, and solenoid. [I've allowed this one to lapse. No need for equations beyond that for a long, straight wire.] 

2  Magnetic
Force Magnetic force on a currentcarrying wire and the Lorentz force on a moving charged particle. 

3 
Mass
Spectrometer Electric and magnetic fields can used to sort out a spectrum of molecules. The process is quite clever. 

4 
Induction How voltage is induced by using a magnetic field. 

5 
Electromagnetism

Hand Rule Lab Springboard  Answers Constructing the right hand rule from lab experience. 

2  Directions
PhyzJob  Answers The geometric relationship between electric current, magnetic field, and magnetic force. 

3  Motional EMF Springboard
 Answers When a wire is moved through a magnetic field, a voltage might be induced. How much? Just the right amount, if you know what I mean! 

4  What is Flux? Springboard
 Answers The concept of magnetic flux is useful when exploring induced electromotive force (voltage). 

5  Faraday's Law Springboard  Answers Getting from Blv to delta phi / delta t takes a bit of doing, so let's do.
