Welcome to the Inductance Applet
This applet shows how EMF is induced in a loop by changing the magnetic flux through the loop. The different ways to change the flux includes changing the current in a nearby wire, changing a uniform background magnetic field, rotating the loop, moving the loop through a non-uniform field, and changing the size of the loop.
Select the system from the pull down menu.
Change the variables of each system by changing the respective scrollbards.
The induced EMF is represented historically by the graph
Wire & Loop - Change the current and position of the loop to induce EMF.
Wire & Changing Loop Size - Change the current and size of the loop to induce EMF.
Uniform Field & Changing Loop Size - Change the magnetic field and size of loop to induce EMF.
Uniform Field & Rotating Loop - Change the magnetic field and the angular position to induce EMF.
AC Current: Wire - The wire has an alternating current, inducing EMF.
AC Current: Rotation - The loop is rotating, changing the magnetic flux, inducing EMF.
