EM5.10 Primary and Secondary Coils

The secondary coil slides over the primary coil, and the soft iron core slides into either or both, providing a look at magnetic induction and transformer theory. This rugged device is sensitive enough to be used with voltmeters instead of galvanometers. The coils are wound around hollow wooden cores, with a turns ratio of approximately 12 to 1. The primary coil is mounted on a wooden stand.
