The Hall Effect

The Hall Effect

This resource provides an interactive activity demonstrating the Hall effect. This effect refers to the fact that "when an electric current flows in a conductor in the presence of a magnetic field, a voltage is detected across the conductor." An interactive diagram is presented allowing students to experiment with a virtual conductor and watch a simulation of how it works.
