Induced Current Moving charge (current) flowing through a wire near a magnet causes the magnet to move. The current induces a changing magnetic field around the wire. The changing magnetic field alternately attracts and repels another magnet. The interaction between these magnetic fields causes the motor’s rotor to spin . The opposite is also true. A moving magnet induces moving charge (current) in a wire. The moving magnet creates a changing magnetic field. The changing magnetic field induces a changing current in a nearby wire. The induced current in the wire induces a magnetic field around the wire. 17-2
