This experiment aims to find the horizontal component of the earth's magnetic field using a simple experiment. The experiment involves the investigation of the combined effect of the magnetic fields produced by the earth and a current carrying multi-turn coil. With the help of graphs, students are expected to study the relation of current through the coil and the magnetic field that it generates. Furthermore, magnetic fields measured at different distances will provide insight into the distance dependence of the magnetic field.
