Ryan Johnson PHYS 121A Lab 223: Faraday’s Law Objective : In this experiment, the voltage induced in a coil by a changing magnetic filed is measured and compared with the predictions of Faraday's Law. The source of the magnetic field will be a pair of Helmholz coils. Data: Conclusion: Although some of the results of theoretical and experimental seem to closely match, there is a huge error in the 400 and 100 Hz and a slightly less though still large error in the 200Hz measurement. This could have been caused by several different problems. First, the human error involved. We could have been measuring something else incorrectly, therefore the theoretical equation is off. Also, a machine could be off, producing or reading something different than it actually states.
