Induction As English scientist Michael Faraday discovered, a magnetic field exerts a force of attraction or repulsion upon the charge carriers (electrons) in the wire causing (inducing) current (electrical energy). The magnetic field can be from a natural magnet, man-made magnet, or an electromagnet. There are three configurations in which induction takes place: A steady strength, moving, magnetic field crosses a stationary wire. - Alternator. A moving wire crosses a stationary, steady strength, magnetic field. - Generator. A stationary, variable strength magnet and a stationary wire. - Wheel Speed Sensor and Reluctor.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
