Chapter 22: Electromagnetic Induction

Motion in an ElectroMagnetic Field

Dr. Alan J. Scott in the Department of Physics, University of Wisconsin-Stout.

This animation illustrates three basic ways that an emf (or voltage) can be generated in a conducting coil by virtue of its interaction with an external magnetic field.

Dr. Scott has a collection of animations called On-line Animations of Time Evolving Physical Systems.

The Electric Motor: Faraday's Law and Lenz's Law

by Dan MacIsaac at the Department of Physics at SUNY -- Buffalo State College.

This page contains instructions of how to construct a simple electric motor from a magnet, (enamel-covered) wire, a steel-clad D cell and two paper clips.

Dr. MacIsaac has a collection of simple experiments called Seat Experiments.

Transforming Current

The SchoolNet Support Group, Global-X-Change Communications Inc.

Create a current in an electromagnet without touching it. A nice simple experiment replicating a simple transformer.

The Mechanical Universe and Beyond

Program 38: Alternating Current. The history and physics underlying AC generation and distribution. See also Program 37: Electromagnetic Induction. Two thirty-minute on-demand streamed physics lecture / animated presentations hosted by Professor David Goodstein of the California Institute of Technology as part of the Annenberg / CPB series The Mechanical Universe and Beyond.

This site requires cable modem (384K) or better speed connection to the internet and free registration with Annenberg / CPB.


JAVA simulationsfrom the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University.

There is a collection of Electricity and Magnetism JAVA tutorials here well worth reviewing.
