    If we imagine our system to be a carousel. On one of the seats of the carousel is a child, holding the bar magnet and the electrically charged ball, than we have a system resembling a nucleus (center of carousel) and an orbiting electron. The magnetometer will be used to measure the contributions.
    Comparing it to the hyperfine field contributions, we can see that the fermi contact contribution can be excluded. Using a classical system to describe the wave nature and presence of the electron in the nucleus might be a bit difficult.
    The dipolar contribution however is easily seen as shown in the video, namely the bar magnet as electron, which has it’s own magnetic field.
    The orbital contribution can also be understood quite easily as the electric ball orbiting around the centre of the the carousel, thus creating a magnetic field.
