Description
The Hall Probe Depends on the Hall effect to produce a voltage that is proportional to a magnetic field, thus allowing a measurement of the field Only the component of the field perpendicular to the Hall sample is measured Reversing the sense of the field will reverse the sense of the voltage measured → negative numbers The Hall probe can thus give a measurement of the direction of the field in addition to its strength: the probe is rotated until the voltage reading is maximized; at this point, the probe sample will be perpendicular to the field. The sense of the voltage will tell you which way the field goes. The Solenoid A solenoid is a long coil of wire. The length of the solenoid must be much greater than the diameter. In addition, the dist
