Lat. Am. J. Phys. Educ. Vol. 4, No. 3, Sept. 2010 520 Teaching of Faraday’s and Lenz’s theory of electromagnetic induction using java based Faraday’s lab simulations Sanjay Prakashchand Hargunani Department of Physics, G.S. Science, Arts and Commerce College, Khamgaon- 443201 (Maharashtra), India. E-mail: [email protected] ( Received 5 June 2010; accepted 29 August 2010) Abstract The effect of Faraday’s lab simulation software on perception of the students about Faraday’s and Lenz’s theory of electromagnetic induction (EMI) was studied. Stud ents’ perception about the topic before and after simulation was noted. Teaching with Faraday’s lab simulation creates the interest and curiosity about EMI phenomenon among students. It makes the study easy and reduces the real laboratory work. This simulation helps the students to learn the EMI phenomenon by their own. Keywords: Physics education, electromagnetic induction, Faraday’s lab simulation. Resumen Se estudió el efecto de los programas de laboratorio de simulación Faraday en la percepción de los estudiantes acerca de la teoría de Faraday y de Lenz de la inducción electromagnética (EMI). Se señaló la percepción de los estudiantes sobre el tema antes y después de la simulación. Enseñar con simulaciones de laboratorio de Faraday crea el interés y la curiosidad sobre el fenómeno de EMI entre los estudiantes. Hace el estudio fácil y reduce el trabajo de laboratorio real. Esta simulación permite a los estudiantes aprender el fenómeno de la EMI por su cuenta propia. Palabras clave: Enseñanza de la Física, la inducción electromagnética, la simulación de laboratorio de Faraday. PACS : 03.50.De, 41.20.-q, 81.70.Ex, 41.20.Gz ISSN 1870-9095 I. INTRODUCTION School teachers teach the Faraday’s and Lenz’s theory of electromagnetic induction using equations, graphs, diagrams, examples and numerical. Many students face considerable difficulties in understanding the phenomenon using equations. Students use equations to calculate some variables and numbers as a solution. It is very difficult for students to see the importance of each variable and constants in given equations. However physical equations have deeper meanings. Equations represent the relation
