MAGNETIC DEVICES
Electromagnets Electromagnets, in various forms, are very useful items and have become commonplace on modern aircraft. Electromagnets, as the name implies, are produced by using an electric current to create a magnetic field. Around every conductor carrying electric current a magnetic field exists. Figure 1-19(a) shows a compass used to detect the magnetic field adjacent to a conductor that carries current. This magnetic field is created due to the movement of electrons through the conductor. Typically this magnetic field is so small it is unnoticed. However, if the…
