Magnetic field of a straight wire with current Coiling the wire: magnetic field lines go through the coil Changing the current in a coil can “induce” an emf in a second coil. A related effect happens with a single coil: an attempt to change the current through the coil leads to a self-induced emf. Self-induced emf acts in a direction to oppose the change of current.
