Transcript and Presenter's Notes

1
• An English Physicist and Chemist who discovered
that electricity can be generated by moving a
conductor through a magnetic field or by moving a
magnetic field pass a conductor.

2
Magnetic Flux
• A measure of the amount of magnetic field lines
passing a certain area.
• The SI system unit for magnetic flux is a Weber
(Wb) or Tm2 (Telsa times meters squared)
• Denoted by the capital Greek letter phi, F.
• Magnetic Flux is a scalar quantity.
• FBA cos?, ? is the angle between the magnetic
field and a normal to the plane of the area.

A magnetic field of 3.5 T passes through an area
of 2.0 m2. How much flux passes through the
area given that the field lines passes
perpendicular to the plane of the area. F

• A changing magnetic flux induces an EMF
(electromotive force/voltage/potential
difference) in the area surrounding the flux.

Methods to Induce an EMF
Continually changing the magnetic field strength
1.
Change the area exposed to a constant
magnetic field.
2.
Move a conductor with a length, l, exposed to
a magnetic field at a velocity, v.

Changing the Strength of the Magnetic Field
S N
S N
Motion away from area
Motion towards area
Magnet moves closer to area
Magnet moves farther from area
Increasing the flux passing through the
conducting area
Decreasing the flux passing through the
conducting area
• A voltage/EMF results in the conducting area and
as a result as a current.
• The magnetic field change can be achieved by
moving a magnetic (steady magnetic field) closer
and farther away from the conducting area.

Another Method of Changing the Area Exposed to
the Magnetic Field
All sides of the wire are exposed
Moving the wire will change the flux through the
area thus inducing an EMF/voltage in the wire.

Lenzs Law
• The current induced in a conductor by an external
magnetic field will always have a magnetic field
from the induced current to reduce the change in
flux.

Lenzs Law
• The current induced in a conductor by an external
magnetic field will always have a magnetic field
that opposes the change in magnetic flux causing
the induction.

Modification of Faradays Law Due to Lenzs Law
The negative sign takes into account that the
voltage opposes the change In flux

magnetic field.
