Introduction: In this lab, we will investigate magnetic field direction and magnitude for a permanent magnet and a solenoid. We will be introduced to the concept of magnetic induction and will demonstrate Faraday’s Law and Lenz’s Law to be valid. Faraday’s law states that the induced emf (electromotive force) in a closed loop equals the negative of the time rate of change of magnetic flux through the loop, meaning that the induced emf is proportional to the rate of change of the magnetic flux through a coil. Lenz’s Law is that the emf induced in an electric circuit always acts in such a direction that the current it drives around a closed circuit produces a magnetic field which opposes the change in magnetic flux We will demonstrate the magnetic field accompanying an electric current in a wire.
