Physics 24-Winter 2003-L183 Two Experiments Induced current and induced emf when something changes. What is it? Faraday: An emf is induced in the coil when the number of magnetic field lines that pass through the coil is changing. How to determine the amount of magnetic field lines that pass through a coil?
Physics 24-Winter 2003-L184 Faraday’s Law of Induction The emf induced in a circuit is directly proportional to the time rate of change of the magnetic flux through the circuit: If the circuit contains N loops all with the same area an emf is induced in every loop, and the total induced emf is
Physics 24-Winter 2003-L185 Ways to Change the Magnetic Flux Change the magnetic field within the coil Change the area of the coil in the field (for example, stretch the coil or move it in or out of the field) Change the angle between the magnetic field direction and the coil (rotate the coil) B

Physics 24-Winter 2003-L187 Direction of Induced emf What about that pesky minus sign? An induced emf produces a current that creates a magnetic flux to oppose the original change in the magnetic flux. This is known as Lenz’s Law
Physics 24-Winter 2003-L188 Examples of Lenz’s Law I I I 1. 3. 2. Determine the direction of the induced current in each resistor below. I suddenly decreases.
Physics 24-Winter 2003-L189 Motional emf Motional emf is the emf induced in a conductor moving in a magnetic field. We will limit this to constant magnetic fields. B v l + - The magnetic force on the electrons in the bar causes them to move downward. E This separates the charges in the bar producing an electric field in the bar. The electric field exerts an upward force on the electrons. At equilibrium the forces balance, and
Physics 24-Winter 2003-L1810 Motional emf B v l + - E The separation of charges also produces a voltage difference across the bar, or an induced emf, . Sincewe can write When a conductor moves through a uniform magnetic field a potential difference is maintained between the ends of the conductor.
Physics 24-Winter 2003-L1811 Motional emf x l R I F ap p v B A more interesting situation occurs when the moving bar is part of a closed conducting path. We assume the bar has zero resistance, and that the stationary part of the circuit has resistance R. As the bar is pulled to the right with velocity v by the applied force F app the electrons are again subject to a downward force. Now, however, the electrons are free to move in the closed conducting path and a counterclockwise current is established.
Physics 24-Winter 2003-L1812 Motional emf x l R I F ap p v B Does the induced counterclockwise current follow Lenz’s law? As the bar slides to the right the magnetic flux through the circuit into the page is increasing. Lenz’s law says the induced current will produce a magnetic field to oppose that increase. In other words, the induced current should produce a magnetic field that points out of the page. A counterclockwise current does this.
Physics 24-Winter 2003-L1813 Motional emf x l R I F ap p v B The magnetic flux through the circuit at this instant is B = BA = Blx. So Faraday’s law gives the following: Hence
Physics 24-Winter 2003-L1814 Motional emf x l R I F ap p v B As the bar moves through the uniform magnetic field B it also experiences a magnetic force F B. FBFB This force is opposite the applied force and because the bar moves with constant velocity it must be equal in magnitude as well.
Physics 24-Winter 2003-L1815 Motional emf x l R I F ap p v B FBFB Since we foundthen The power supplied by the applied force is then First the mechanical energy is converted to electrical energy. This electrical energy is then converted to internal energy in the resistor.
