Electromagnetic Induction In 1820, Oersted discovered that “electric current produces magnetic field”. In 1830, M. Faraday formulated a law that embodies the opposite effect: “ changing magnetic flux produces electric current” Magnetic flux is defined as – It is proportional to the number of magnetic field lines pass through the surface of the coil – The unit of Φ is Weber ( T-m 2 ) Faraday’s Law of Electromagnetic Induction – The induced EMF in a coil is equal to the rate of change of the magnetic flux through it: t N ∆Φ = ε φ Coil (of area A ) viewed edge-on B r cos BA = Φ ( N is number of turns in coil )
