Does the thickness of a non-ferrous material affect the pendulum speed swinging between two magnets, if so, how much?. Joseph Turley. Movement of material. Introduction. Eddy currents are created when a conducting material is moved through a magnetic field.
Eddy currents are created when a conducting material is moved through a magnetic field.
These eddy currents create a force that constantly opposes the motion of the object.
This slows down the object moving through the magnetic field.
