Induced emf Experiment: –When the switch is closed, the ammeter deflects momentarily –There is an induced emf in the secondary coil (producing an induced current) due to the changing magnetic field through this coil When there is a steady current in the primary coil, the ammeter reads zero current –Steady magnetic fields cannot produce a current
Magnetic Flux In general, induced emf is actually due to a change in magnetic flux Magnetic flux is defined similarly to electric flux: –Units of flux are T m 2 (or Wb) –Flux can be positive or negative The value of the magnetic flux through a loop/surface is proportional to the total number of field lines passing through the loop/surface
Faraday’s Law Faraday’s Law says that the magnitude of the induced emf in a circuit is equal to the time rate of change of the magnetic flux through the circuit The average emf induced in a circuit containing N tightly wound loops is given by: –Magnetic flux changes by amount B during the time interval t The minus sign in the equation concerns the sense of the polarity of the induced emf in the loop (and how it makes current flow in the loop) –The direction follows Lenz's law:Lenz's law The direction of the induced emf is such that it produces a current whose magnetic field opposes the change in magnetic flux through the loop The induced current tends to maintain the original flux through the loop
Example Problem #20.58 Solution (details given in class): 0.121 A clockwise The square loop shown is made of wires with a total series resistance of 10.0 . It is placed in a uniform 0.100-T magnetic field directed perpendicular into the plane of the paper. The loop, which is hinged at each corner, is pulled as shown until the separation between points A and B is 3.00 m. If this process takes 0.100 s, what is the average current generated in the loop? What is the direction of the current?

Applications of Faraday’s Law Ground fault interrupter (GFI) Electric guitar pickups Magnetoencephalography (brain), magnetocardiograms (heart and surrounding nerves)
Motional emf Consider a straight conducting bar moving perpendicularly to the direction of a uniform external magnetic field –Free charges (e – ) experience downward force F –Creates a charge separation in the conductor –Charge separation leads to a downward electric field E –Eventually equilibrium is reached and the (downward) magnetic force qvB on the electrons balances the (upward) electric force qE qE = qvB E = vB V = El (since E uniform) –A potential difference is maintained across the conductor as long as there is motion through the field If motion is reversed, polarity of potential difference is also reversed l
Motional emf Now consider the same bar as part of a closed conducting path –Since the area of the current loop changes as the bar moves, an induced emf is created due to a changing magnetic flux through the loop –An induced current is created –The direction of the current is counterclockwise (Lenz’s law) –Assume bar moves a distance x in time t B = B A = Bl x From Faraday’s Law (and noting that N = 1 ): (motional emf)
Motional emf Notes on this experiment: –The moving bar acts like a battery with an emf given by the previous formula –Although the current tends to deplete the accumulated charge at each end of the bar, the magnetic force pumps more charge to maintain a constant potential difference –At right is the equivalent circuit diagram –The work done by the force pulling the rod is the source of the electrical energy –This setup is not practical; a more practical use of motional emf is through a rotating coil of wire (electric generators) –Note that a battery can be used to drive a current, which establishes a magnetic field, which can propel the bar

Example Problem #20.21 Solution (details given in class): (a)Toward the east (b)4.58 10 –4 V A car has a vertical radio antenna 1.20 m long. The car travels at 65.0 km/h on a horizontal road where the Earth’s magnetic field is 50.0 T, directed toward the north and downwards at an angle of 65.0° below the horizontal. (a) Specify the direction the car should move in order to generate the maximum motional emf in the antenna, with the top of the antenna positive relative to the bottom. (b) Calculate the magnitude of this induced emf.
Electric Generators Alternating current (AC) generators Direct current (DC) generators N = # turns in loop coil B = magnetic field strength A = Area of the loop coil = angular rotation speed max = NBA (plane of loop parallel to magnetic field) min = 0 (plane of loop perpendicular to magnetic field) f = 60 Hz (U.S.) ( 2 f ) ( = t) (note similarity to DC motor – Chap. 19)
Motors and Back emf Generators convert mechanical energy to electrical energy Motors convert electrical energy to mechanical energy generators run in reverse As the coil in the motor rotates, the changing magnetic flux through it induces an emf –This emf acts to reduce the current in the coil (in agreement with Lenz’s law) –For this reason, the emf is called a back emf –Power requirements for starting a motor or running it under heavy loads larger than running under average loads
Self-Inductance Consider the effect of current flow in a simple circuit with a battery and a resistor –Faraday’s law prevents the current from reaching its maximum value ( / R ) immediately after switch is closed Magnetic flux through the loop changes as current increases Resulting induced emf acts to reduce total emf of circuit –When the rate of current change lessens as current increases, induced emf decreases Another example: increasing and decreasing current in a solenoid coil
Self-Inductance These effects are called self-induction The emf that is produced is called self-induced emf (or back emf) – L is a constant called the inductance –The minus sign indicates that a changing current induces an emf that is in opposition to that change –Units of inductance is the henry (H) 1 H = 1 V s / A An expression for inductance can be found by equating Faraday’s law with the above:
RL Circuits A circuit element having a large inductance is called an inductor From we see that an inductor acts as a current stabilizer –The larger the inductance in a circuit, the larger the opposition to the rate of change of the current –Remember that resistance is a measure of the opposition to current Consider a series circuit consisting of a battery, resistor, and inductor –Current changes most rapidly when switch is first closed Back emf largest at this point (Series RL circuit)
RL Circuits Using calculus, we can derive an expression for the current in the circuit as a function of time –Similar to charge q as a function of time for a charging capacitor –Like RC circuits, there is a time constant for the circuit: When the switch is opened, the current in the circuit decreases exponentially with time (rise of current) ( decay of current ) decay of current

(b) Determine the average back emf caused by the self- inductance of the solenoid during this interval. (c) The magnetic field produced by the solenoid at the location of the coil is ½ as strong as the field at the center of the solenoid. Determine the average rate of change in magnetic flux through each turn of the coil during the stated interval. (d) Find the magnitude of the average induced current in the coil.
