Photo of the Demonstration at the University of Texas at Austin.
Instructions / Notes:
- A crude galvanometer with a large wire coil suspended between two magnetic poles.
- This apparatus allows one to infer the direction of current flowing through a wire coil.
- To close the circuit, press the momentary switch. A second switch reverses the current flow.
