Electromagnetic Induction
Section 1 Electricity from Magnetism Chapter 20 Electromagnetic Induction Electromagnetic induction is the process of creating a current in a circuit by a changing magnetic field. A change in the magnetic flux through a conductor induces an electric current in the conductor. The separation of charges by the magnetic force induces an emf.

Characteristics of Induced Current
Section 1 Electricity from Magnetism Chapter 20 Characteristics of Induced Current Lenz’s Law The magnetic field of the induced current is in a direction to produce a field that opposes the change causing it. Note: the induced current does not oppose the applied field, but rather the change in the applied field.

Section 1 Electricity from Magnetism Chapter 20 Characteristics of Induced Current, continued The magnitude of the induced emf can be predicted by Faraday’s law of magnetic induction. Faraday’s Law of Magnetic Induction The magnetic flux is given by FM = ABcosq.

Generators and Alternating Current
Section 2 Generators, Motors, and Mutual Inductance Chapter 20 Generators and Alternating Current A generator is a machine that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. Generators use induction to convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. A generator produces a continuously changing emf.

Generators and Alternating Current, continued
Section 2 Generators, Motors, and Mutual Inductance Chapter 20 Generators and Alternating Current, continued Alternating current is an electric current that changes direction at regular intervals. Alternating current can be converted to direct current by using a device called a commutator to change the direction of the current.

Section 2 Generators, Motors, and Mutual Inductance
Chapter 20 Motors Motors are machines that convert electrical energy to mechanical energy. Motors use an arrangement similar to that of generators. Back emf is the emf induced in a motor’s coil that tends to reduce the current in the coil of a motor.

Chapter 20 Effective Current
Section 3 AC Circuits and Transformers Chapter 20 Effective Current The root-mean-square (rms) current of a circuit is the value of alternating current that gives the same heating effect that the corresponding value of direct current does. rms Current

Section 3 AC Circuits and Transformers Chapter 20 Effective Current, continued The rms current and rms emf in an ac circuit are important measures of the characteristics of an ac circuit. Resistance influences current in an ac circuit.

Section 3 AC Circuits and Transformers
Chapter 20 Transformers A transformer is a device that increases or decreases the emf of alternating current. The relationship between the input and output emf is given by the transformer equation.

Transformers, continued
Section 3 AC Circuits and Transformers Chapter 20 Transformers, continued The transformer equation assumes that no power is lost between the primary and secondary coils. However, real transformers are not perfectly efficient. Real transformers typically have efficiencies ranging from 90% to 99%. The ignition coil in a gasoline engine is a transformer.
