iClicker Question 6.01 – We know that a current in a wire creates a magnetic field. – We also know that a magnetic field induces a force on a moving charge or current. Does the presence of a constant magnetic field induce a current in a wire loop? A)Yes. B) No. CDE) Maybe so. Explain your response to your neighbor. Spring 2011 3
Spring 2011 4 Demonstration questions • Note direction of induced current. B ammeter coil magnet Is current observed when the coil is held steady so the magnetic flux passes through it? A)Yes B) No Is current observed as the magnet flux is moved into the coil of wire? A) Yes B) No Does the current depend on the direction in which the magnet is moved?

Spring 2011 7 Faraday’s Law An emf is produced around a loop when the magnetic flux that passes through the loop changes. B loop d EMF dt  , therefore (Maxwell's Eq.) B EMF E ds d E ds dt   
Lenz’ Law • If we make the Faraday’s Law loop out of a conducting wire, the induced emf causes current to flow. ( I=Emf/R ) • The induced current in a loop opposes the change in magnetic flux.
