Next Generation Science Standards:

HS PS  2-5 Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that an electric current can produce a magnetic field and that a changing magnetic field can produce an electric current.


HS PS 3-1 Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy  of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known.


HS – PS 3-5 Develop and use a model of two objects interacting through electric or magnetic fields to illustrate the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.
