Surrounding a magnet is a
field that applies a force, a push or

Evidence of a magnetic field can be found in how the field

An electric current flowing through a wire wrapped around an iron core forms a

is formed when wire in an electric circuit is wrapped around an
core producing a magnetic field.
the magnet that results loses its magnetism if the electric current

like poles of the magnets repel and unlike poles of the magnet attract
this causes the coil to

produces an electric current when a coil of wire wrapped around an iron core is
near a magnet
generators power plants produce electric energy for our homes
a generator contains coils of wire that are stationary, and rotating magnets are rotated by turbines.
are huge wheels that rotate when pushed by water, wind, or steam.
Thus mechanical energy is changed to electrical energy by a generator. Smaller generators may be powered by

when a electric current flows through the wire in the electromagnet, a magnetic field is

a coil of wire spinning around a magnet or a magnet spinning around a coil of wire can form an
