Transformer experiments - For non-specialist physics teachers

(0)
Attached is everything you will need to teach a lesson (with a class practical or demonstration) on transformers. Using a multimeter that can measure AC voltage (available at places like Maplins), and a set of transformer coils (available from Phillip Harris) students measure the voltage across the primary and secondary coil of a transformer. Included are student instructions, guided questions, and teacher set up instructions. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A MULTIMETER THAT CAN MEASURE AC VOLTAGE BEFORE PURCHASING! See cover image for all equipment you will need!
