Review Blast: Magnetic Field & Forces (Levels: Intro, APB, APC)

This podcast is a very quick review of how to perform several different calculations related to magnetic field. (It does NOT review directional aspects of magnetic forces, such as the right-hand rule.) Long straight current-carrying wires are discussed, from the perspective of B-fields they create and how they are affected by external B-fields. The effects of a B-field on a moving charge's motion are also reviewed.
