An Elementary Model of the Earth's Magnetic Field
Watt, Jeanie I.; Roth, Bradley J.
Physics Teacher, v45 n3 p168-170 Mar 2007
This article is intended as a guide for teaching geomagnetism in a high school or university introductory physics class. Many students find this subject fascinating. Instructors, however, often have a difficult time introducing this topic at an elementary level. Suggestions will be made on how to accomplish this using three electricity and magnetism problems commonly encountered in an introductory class.
