through a cross-sectional area per unit time. The electromotive "force" (emf) measured in volts produces a flow of charges, called the induced current, in the presence of a changing magnetic field. So, it is the potential difference that produces an induced current. The flow of charges produced by a moving conductor is called the motional emf. Magnetic Flux
The magnetic flux is a measure of the number of magnetic filed lines passing through a surface of area A, and it is given by = (Bcos)A
where B is the magnetic field and is the angle between the magnetic field vector and the normal vector to the surface. Faraday's Law of Induction
The average emf E induced in a coil of N is given by E = -N /t
where is the change in magnetic flux through N loops of a coil in the time interval t. The SI unit of average emf E is volts. Lenz's Law
An induced emf generates an induced current whose magnetic field opposes an increasing change in magnetic flux. Self and Mutual Induction Self-induction is a process in which an
induced emf appears in any coil in which the current is changing. Mutual-induction is a process in which the
changing current of one coil produces an emf in another coil. ...
