Magnetism

These slides recap some ideas from junior science (north and south poles, magnetic fields, representing magnetic fields), and the right hand grip rule is introduced (used to determine direction of magnetic field around a current carrying conductor).  Conventions for representing field lines in/out of the page are also explained (and current in/out of the page).  The magnetic field created by a solenoid (electromagnet) is also described.
