12 Electromagnetic induction When a magnet is pushed into a coil of wire an electric current is produced in the wire. We say that a current was induced in the wire.
13 EM Induction explained The coils of wire are full of free electrons randomly moving from atom to atom. When the magnetic field of the magnet moves past the coils of wire the magnetic field exerts a force on the free electrons. We call this force an EMF Electro Motive Force. The force on the electrons causes them to move through the wire, this is an electric current. The changing magnetic field induces an electric voltage across the circuit.
14 Moving up and down When we change the direction of the magnet we are changing the direction of the force on the free electrons in the wire. The electric current is induced in the opposite direction.
16 Stationary magnet = no current When the magnet is stationary there is no electric current. This is common sense we cannot generate electrical energy without some energy going into the system. Without the kinetic energy of the moving magnet the electrical energy of the current will not be created.
17 Standard equipment A suitable meter, either an a.c. meter or a galvanometer, A coil, Two connecting wires, A magnet.
19 Increasing the speed Moving a magnet in and out at a faster speed will increase the voltage. The overall electrical energy from each movement will be the same but there will be more movements per second and hence more power. We will need to put in more kinetic energy every second.
20 Increasing the magnetism If we increase the strength of the magnet passing into the coil there will be a more voltage. However, if this makes the magnet heavier we will need to provide more kinetic energy.
21 Increasing the coils If we increase the number or area of the coils there will be more voltage. With more coils of wire we will have more free electrons, there will be a greater current; but a longer wire also means more resistance – and something called Lenzs law (not in examination).
22 Increasing the voltage There are three mains ways to increase the size of the induced electric voltage. Use a stronger magnet, Use more coils of wire (sometimes called turns), Move the magnet quicker.
23 Whats the conditions for creating induced current /e.m.f. ? Change of magnetic field in the loop
24 Lenzs law The direction of the induced e.m.f. is such as to cause effects to oppose the change producing it. The INDUCED current creates an INDUCED magnetic field of its own inside the conductor that opposes change of the original magnetic flux density.

34 A microphone works when sound waves enter the filter of a microphone. Inside the filter, a diaphragm is vibrated by the sound waves which in turn moves a coil of wire wrapped around a magnet. The movement of the wire in the magnetic field induces a current in the wire. Thus sound waves can be turned into electronic signals and then amplified through a speaker.
37 A.C. and D.C. Direct current is present in one direction. The charge flows in one direction only, e.g. a battery. Alternating current is present in both directions. Charge flows first in one direction and then in the opposite direction. It has a typical frequency of 50 Hz (UK) or 60 Hz (Bermuda and the USA). There are advantages and disadvantages of both types of electrical power.
38 A.C. and D.C. Batteries always supply direct current. Mains electricity is always supplied as alternating current.
39 Alternating Current An electric current is called an alternating current if the charge flows in one direction then changes to flow in the opposite direction. When looking at a diagram it is important to see if the line goes both above and below the zero line. Forwards Zero line Backwards
40 0 Volts + - a.c. sine wave When electricity is generated in power stations it takes the form of a sine wave. Many electrical signals look like a sine wave. House current is 120 volts, 60 Hz in the US and Bermuda. House current is 240 volts, 50 Hz in the UK.
41 0 Volts + - Is this a.c. or d.c. Although this electrical signal has a sine wave shape it is still a d.c. signal. The wave increases and decreases but never reverses direction. Think about a car moving along speeding up and then slowing down.
43 The dynamo A dynamo has a rotating magnet inside a coil. Simple examples can be found in old bicycle lamps.
44 Generator Rather than move a magnet inside of a coil we can turn the situation around. This time we will move a coil inside of a magnetic field. We call this arrangement a generator. Most generators produce a.c. electricity consequently they are sometimes called alternators.
45 a.c. generator Moving a coil in a circle between two magnets produces an induced electric current in the coil.
51 Generator theory As the coil turns it cuts across the magnetic field, An EMF (Electro-Motive Force) pushes free electrons along the wire. This is an induced electric current. An a.c. is transmitted through the brushes to the rest of the circuit.
57 What are the four ways in which the (induced) current from an AC generator can be increased? 1._________________________ 2._________________________ 3._________________________ 4._________________________ faster movement stronger magnetic field more coils larger area of coils
58 Summary - Induction When a conductor moves through a permanent magnetic field a voltage is induced in the conductor. When a magnet spins inside a coil of wire the magnetic field at any place in the coil is changing. The changing magnetic field induces a current in the wire. coil. Induced voltage can be increased by using a stronger magnetic field, using more coils of wire or by moving the generator faster.
