Shows the Hall effect for different directions of electric current and magnetic field. Created by Søren Peo Pedersen - see my user page at http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruger:Peo
1. Electrons (not conventional current!) 2. Hall element, or Hall sensor 3. Magnets 4. Magnetic field 5. Power source
In drawing "A", the Hall element takes on a negative charge at the top edge (symbolised by the blue color) and positive at the lower edge (red color). In "B" and "C", either the electric current or the magnetic field is reversed, causing the polarization to reverse. Reversing both current and magnetic field (drawing "D") causes the Hall element to again assume a negative charge at the upper edge.
