Chapter 22 WebLab#2 “Lenz’s Law” Part One * Go to the following website: http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/electromag/java/lenzlaw/index.html * Click and drag on the magnet to move it upward or downward. Observe the current induced in the metal ring. Also observe the magnetic field created by the induced current. Questions: 1)When you are moving the magnet toward the ring, what is the direction of the magnetic field created by the induced current? What is the direction of the magnet’s field? What is happening to the strength of the magnet’s field at the coil? induced field magnet field magnet’s direction: down direction: up field is: up 2)When you are moving the magnet away from the ring, what is the direction of the magnetic field created by the induced current? What is the direction of the magnet’s field? What is happening to the strength of the magnet’s field? induced field magnet field magnet’s direction: up direction: up field is: up 3)Describe the magnetic force that must be acting on the magnet as it moves near the coil. Using the right hand rule, the magnetic force is out of the page/screen.
