Enter the voltage, thickness, current and magnetic field into the calculator below to determine the hall coefficient of a conductor. The Hall Effect is the appearance of a voltage difference due to a magnetic field.
Hall Coefficient Formula
The following equation can be used to calculate the hall coefficient.
HC = V * t / (I * B)
- Where HC is the hall coefficient (m^3/C)
- V is the voltage difference (volts)
- t is the thickness of the conductor (mm)
- I is the current running through the conductor (Amps)
- B is the magnetic field observed’ (Teslas (T))
The most important aspect of the hall effect is that it allows your to find the sign of the charge carriers. Whether that be positive or negative. This can show whether the charge is being carried entirely by electrons or if some of that charge is being carried by positive holes.
