This activity has attempted to illustrate the basic principles of magnetism and how they apply to the Sun. Magnetism is a phenomenon that arises out of the movement of charge. To understand this phenomenon, it is important to have a working knowledge of the concepts of magnetic field, force, and the storage of energy in magnetic fields, which this activity has tried to develop through explanations and experiments .We can use these fundamental concepts of magnetism to gain a better understanding of the activity on the surface of the Sun.
