Place magnets on the tables away from the compasses and other sensitive equipment. Use the plastic ones for this set up Use the wire attached to the graph paper in the circuit. Leave the bolts on the tables instead of screwed into the light bulb holders. This ensures the circuit is open. Plug in the inductor coil to the power supply. Use the momentary switch.
