16/07/2015 7 Electromagnetic induction The direction of the induced current is reversed if… 1)The magnet is moved in the opposite direction 2)The other pole is inserted first The size of the induced current can be increased by: 1)Increasing the speed of movement 2)Increasing the magnet strength 3)Increasing the number of turns on the coil
16/07/2015 8 The north pole of a permanent bar magnet is pushed along the axis of a coil as shown below. The pointer of the sensitive voltmeter connected to the coil moves to the right and gives a maximum reading of 8 units. The experiment is repeated but on this occasion, the south pole of the magnet enters the coil at twice the previous speed. Which of the following gives the maximum deflection of the pointer of the voltmeter? A.8 units to the right B.8 units to the left C.16 units to the right D.16 units to the left(1)
10 Derivation of Emf By conservation of energy Derive the formula for the emf induced in a straight conductor moving in a magnetic field. Students should be able to derive the expression induced emf = Blv without using Faraday’s law.
16/07/2015 15 Magnetic Flux As we said, magnetic field strength is also called magnetic flux density. The “magnetic flux” is the amount of flux that passes through a given area: Magnetic flux = magnetic flux density x area Φ = BA (in Weber, Wb) in T in m 2 For a coil of N turns the total magnetic flux is NΦ Φ Faraday (1791-1867) Faraday’s law: The induced EMF for a magnet in a coil is directly proportional to the rate of change of flux linkage: EMF = NΔΦ ΔT
16/07/2015 16 Magnetic flux Define magnetic flux and magnetic flux linkage.
16/07/2015 18 Induced e.m.f NΦ is known as the magnetic flux linkage Φ the magnetic flux through one coil Faraday (1791-1867) Describe the production of an induced emf by a time-changing magnetic flux.
16/07/2015 19 Cutting Magnetic Fields Consider a conductor of length l moving at speed v through a magnetic field at 90 0 : From Faraday’s Law: Not on syllabus Induced emf = -N ΔΦ Δ t But Φ =BA and B is constant, so: Induced emf = -NB A t This is a single wire, so N=1, and A = lvt, therefore: Induced emf = -Blv
16/07/2015 27 Lenz’s Law Consider a magnet in a solenoid: N S The current induced by the magnet induces a north pole that repels the magnet again. Lenz’s Law: Lenz (1804-1865) Any current driven by an induced emf opposes the change that caused it. In other words, emf = -NΦ/t
16/07/2015 30 Lenz’s law question Explain why it is harder to turn a bicycle dynamo when it is connected to a light bulb than when it is not connected to anything.
16/07/2015 31 When a simple d.c. electric motor is connected to a battery, the current which flows during the first few seconds varies (approximately) as shown by the graph below. Explain the shape of this graph.
16/07/2015 35Generator Hyperlink Describe the emf induced in a coil rotating within a uniform magnetic field. Explain the operation of a basic alternating current (ac) generator. Students should understand, without any derivation, that the induced emf is sinusoidal if the rotation is at constant speed.
16/07/2015 36 Effect of changing the speed of rotation of the coil on the induced emf Slow rotationFaster rotation Describe the effect on the induced emf of changing the generator frequency. Students will be expected to compare the output from generators operating at different frequencies by sketching appropriate graphs.
16/07/2015 37 Generator question A rectangular coil, 2cm by 3cm, rotates in a uniform magnetic field of flux density 0.15T. The axis around which the coil rotates is at 90° to the flux lines. The coil has 250 turns and its rotational frequency is 50s - 1.a)Calculate the maximum emf induced in the coil. What is the position of the coil (relative to the flux lines) when the induced emf has its maximum value?b)What is the magnitude of the induced emf at a time 5×10 -3 s after it has passed through its maximum value.c)Calculate the magnitude of the induced emf at a time 2.5×10 -3 s after it has passed through its maximum value.
16/07/2015 38 Revision of DC and AC DC stands for “Direct Current” – the current only flows in one direction: AC stands for “Alternating Current” – the current changes direction 50 times every second (frequency = 50Hz) 1/50 th s 240V V V Time T Discuss what is meant by the root mean squared (rms) value of an alternating current or voltage. Students should know that the rms value of an alternating current (or voltage) is that value of the direct current (or voltage) that dissipates power in a resistor at the same rate. The rms value is also known as the rating.
16/07/2015 44 Rms calculations This question is about rms currents and voltages. For the circuit shown above calculate athe rms value of the current, I b)the maximum value of the current c)the mean power dissipated in R 1 d)the rms value of the voltage across R 2.

16/07/2015 54Transformers Transformers are used to _____ __ or step down _______. They only work on AC because an ________ current in the primary coil causes a constantly alternating _______ ______. This will “_____” an alternating current in the secondary coil. Words – alternating, magnetic field, induce, step up, voltage We can work out how much a transformer will step up or step down a voltage: Voltage across primary (V p ) No. of turns on secondary (N s )Voltage across secondary (V s ) No. of turns on primary (N p )
16/07/2015 55 Describe the operation of an ideal transformer. Solve problems on the operation of ideal transformers.
16/07/2015 57 Transformer questions a)Explain the operation of a step-up transformer. b)A transformer has 250 turns on its primary coil and 4000 turns on its secondary coil. It is connected to a 220V supply. Under normal operating conditions the current flowing through the secondary coil is 25mA and the transformer is 90% efficient (assume that the main source of inefficiency is the resistance of the secondary coil). Calculate i)the secondary voltage when on open circuit (that is, when the secondary coil is not connected to anything). ii)the current flowing through the primary coil when the current flowing through the secondary coil is 25mA.

16/07/2015 61 Energy losses in a transformer Energy can be lost as: (a) heat in the coils because of the resistance of the wire; (b) incomplete transfer of magnetic field; (c) heating of the core due to induced currents in it. This is reduced by making the core out of insulated soft iron in laminated strips. If this were not done the cores of large transformers would get so hot that they would melt. Outline the reasons for power losses in transmission lines and real transformers.
16/07/2015 66 The transmission of electricity To minimise losses through heating, then the current should be as low as possible i.e. make the voltage as high as possible.
16/07/2015 67 Example of power loss Explain the use of high-voltage stepup and step-down transformers in the transmission of electrical power. Students should be aware that, for economic reasons, there is no ideal value of voltage for electrical transmission.
16/07/2015 69 Discuss some of the possible risks involved in living and working near high-voltage power lines. Students should be aware that current experimental evidence suggests that low ‑ frequency fields do not harm genetic material. Students should appreciate that the risks attached to the inducing of current in the body are not fully understood. These risks are likely to be dependent on current (density), frequency and length of exposure.
16/07/2015 70 Health risks Power cables carry a.c. currents These produce e-m fields These can induce currents in the body These might do harm Risk increases with Current Frequency Time of exposure. Suggest how extra-low- frequency electromagnetic fields, such as those created by electrical appliances and power lines, induce currents within a human body.
