Abstract/Description: The Maxwell Coil is a collection of different sized current-carrying rings that, when placed in a specific arrangement, produces a uniquely uniform magnetic field. We have composed numerical representations of this coil arrangement using Microsoft Excel and visual simulations using Mathematica to study the uniformity of the magnetic field produced by the Maxwell Coil. We also construct a physical Maxwell coil using 3D printing and traditional electronic components and compare results of field uniformity with those of the numerical simulations. We find that the Maxwell coil provides the benefit of both high uniformity in field and high mechanical accessibility to that field. These properties allow us to better study special properties of this field experimentally.
