Sol. An electromagnet works on the magnetic effect of current. This is described below.
(i) Wind a copper wire tightly around an iron nail.
(ii) Connect free ends of the wire to the terminals of cell.
(iii) Place some pins near the end of a nail.
(iv) A current passes through the coil and produces a magnetic effect.
Sol. The electric bell works on the magnetic effect of current. So, example of motion of the hammer of an electric bell is incorrect.
Sol. A unit plan is developed by the teacher and serves as a long-rang plan. It contains multiple lesson that are related. The unit plan should illustrate integration of your teaching major with other content areas.
Sol. the meaning of education through excursion is practical personal experience.
