Electromagnetic Induction: Definition & Variables that Affect Induction

1. Electromagnetic Induction: Definition & Variables that Affect Induction

We use electromagnetic induction every day, but do you have any idea what it is? In this lesson, we'll discuss this everyday phenomenon, the factors that affect its strength and its most common applications.

Faraday's Law of Electromagnetic Induction: Equation and Application

2. Faraday's Law of Electromagnetic Induction: Equation and Application

Electromagnetic induction allows us to induce voltage with the movement of a magnetic field. Credited to Michael Faraday, this discovery was not only groundbreaking at the time, but it has since led to many applications in everyday life.

Electric Motors & Generators: Converting Between Electrical and Mechanical Energy

3. Electric Motors & Generators: Converting Between Electrical and Mechanical Energy

Both generators and electric motors are common devices in everyday life, but how do they work and what is the difference between them? In this lesson, we'll explore both of them, which may produce different results but are actually more similar than they may seem.

Electromagnetic Induction: Conductor to Conductor & Transformers

4. Electromagnetic Induction: Conductor to Conductor & Transformers

Every day, we make use of a special case of electromagnetic induction known as mutual induction. In this lesson, we'll talk about this special phenomenon and how it is used in many common devices.

Electromagnetic Waves: Definition, Sources & Properties

5. Electromagnetic Waves: Definition, Sources & Properties

In this lesson, learn the basics of electromagnetic waves and how they make up the electromagnetic spectrum. We will explore the major trends and categories within the spectrum, as well as the various sources of electromagnetic waves.
