The Electromagnet Interactive allows a learner to explore what is required to make an electromagnet and what makes an electromagnet a stronger magnet. Users can add and remove an iron core, adjust the number of batteries used in the circuit, change the number of loops in the coiled wire, and change the radius of the loops.
