Magnetic Induction

- magnetic flux

- induced emf

- Faraday’s Law and Lenz’s Law

Magnetic Flux

Flux through a surface S:

(dA is the “area vector”, perpendicular to the surface.)

- a scalar; units, 1 T·m2 = 1 Weber (Wb)
- represents “number of magnetic field lines through a surface S”

Magnetic Flux

Flux through a closed surface S:

- This is like Gauss’ law, but for magnetism. However, it states that:
- the number of magnetic field lines that enter a volume enclosed by a surface S must equal the number that leave the volume
- and it implies that magnetic monopoles do not exist

Faraday’s Law:

When the external magnetic fluxΦB through a closed conducting loop with one turn changes, the emf induced in the closed loop is:

(for a loop with N turns: )

Note that ΦB changes if:

1) B changes

2) the area of the circuit changes (dA)

3) the orientation of the circuit changes (B•dA)

Lenz’s Law (the negative sign)

(for the direction of the induced emf)

The induced emf and induced current direction in the loop is such that the magnetic flux it produces inside the loop opposes the change in flux inside the loop produced by the external field.The induced emf is directly proportional to the rate of change of the magnetic flux thought the circuit.

The “-” sign:

Field vector B

positive current

direction

For given B direction the R.H. rule defines a corresponding “positive” current and emf direction.

e.g.B , increasing: induced ε is –ve

B , decreasing: induced ε is +ve

A circuit of area A is made from a single loop of wire connected to a resistor of resistance R. It is placed in a uniform external field B (at right angles to the plane of the loop). B is reduced uniformly to zero in time Dt. The total charge which flows through the resistor is:

- independent of Dt
- proportional to Dt
- inversely proportional to Dt
- zero

Motional emf

- emf induced in a conductor moving through a magnetic field.

As the positive charge moves slowly along the conductor, parallel to Fm , the work done on each charge is:

Summary

Faraday’s Law:

A changing magnetic flux induces an emf in a circuit:

Lenz’s Law: (for direction of ε)

The induced emf causes an induced current whose flux would oppose the change in external flux through the loop.
