This activity from the Exploratorium demonstrates the magnetic field produced by a current-carrying wire. A group of compasses are arranged around the wire to indicate the direction of the field (including Earth's field). The site provides an explanation of the physics that occurs and a description of the right-hand rule. This activity is part of Exploratorium's Science Snacks series.
