1. Magnetic Force: Definition, Poles & Dipoles
A magnetic force is produced when electrons are moving and many become magnets themselves. Discover more about magnetic forces, the root of magnetism, and monopoles and dipoles.
2. What is a Magnetic Field?
A magnetic field is created when magnets are in the same space as one another, creating a force. Learn more about a magnetic field, how to detect it with a compass, and ferromagnetic Materials.
3. How Magnetic Fields Are Created
Magnetic fields are generated when charged particles move around. Explore more about magnetic fields, their source, current carrying conductors, and electromagnets and how they act.
4. How Magnetic Forces Affect Moving Charges
A charged particle that moves through a magnetic field will be exposed to and affected by a particular force. Discover more about the effects of force on a moving charge, why relative motion is important, and the direction and strength of force.
5. Faraday's Law of Electromagnetic Induction: Equation and Application
Electromagnetic induction refers to voltage induced by changes in the magnetic field. Learn about Michael Faraday's life and major discovery, and explore the definition, equation, and real-world applications of Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction.
6. Electromagnetic Induction: Definition & Variables that Affect Induction
Electromagnetic induction involves altering a magnetic field can produce a voltage and is utilized in many different applications. Explore more about electromagnetic induction, including its applications and the variables that affect induction.
7. Electromagnetic Induction: Conductor to Conductor & Transformers
Electromagnetic induction is the production of electromotive force by moving a magnetic field across an electric conductor. Learn more about mutual inductance, its applications, and transformers.
8. The Lorentz Force Law
Electric and magnetic fields are both capable of creating forces on charged particles. In this lesson you'll learn how these two forces are related through the Lorentz force law.
9. Lenz's Law, Magnetic Flux and Motional EMF
Lenz's Law, magnetic flux, and motional EMF all impact how electricity is generated. Learn more about how we make electricity, examine magnetic flux, review Faraday's Law, and understand Lenz's Law before combining knowledge of all three to complete your understanding.
