Hall Effect Experiment

I decided it would be interesting to cover the hall effect. So in this video I show you a failed hall effect experiment, then we build a working test rig using gold foil - just as Mr. Edwin Hall did over at Johns Hopkins back in the day. We use a power supply to push current through the foil and measure the hall voltage with a Fluke 883A differential voltmeter. I also demonstrate an off the shelf hall effect sensor.
