Electromagnetic Induction

Posted by Electromagnetism | 8:22 PM | 0 comments »

When a magnet is moved into and out of the solenoid, magnetic flux is being cut by the coil. The cutting of magnetic flux by the wire coil induces an e.m.f in the wire. When the solenoid is connected to a closed circuit, the induced current will flow through the circuit.

The direction of the induced current and the magnitude of the induced e.m.f due to the cutting of the magnetic flux can be determined from Lenz's Law and Faraday's Law.
