Lenz’s Law (10:12)
In this episode, Mr. P takes us deeper into Faraday's law, exploring the crucial element of direction by introducing Lenz's law. Lenz's law states that the induced current in a circuit, due to a change in magnetic flux, is directed to oppose that change. The class utilizes the righthand rule to determine the direction of induced current in various scenarios. Through a series of illustrative examples, including changing magnetic field strength, loop area, and orientation, the students showcase the application of Lenz's law in predicting the direction of induced magnetic fields and currents. Join the discussion on electromagnetic induction and gain a comprehensive understanding of this fundamental physics principle!
