Faraday's Law of Electromagnetic Induction

1. Abstract
2. Overview
3. Updates


The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the workings of a basic law of electromagnetism: Faraday's Law. This project will deal with the interaction between magnetic fields and electric circuits and how this interaction leads to electromotive forces via induction. It will be crucial to understanding the operation of motors and generators.



11/3/14 Created first working VPython animation for movement and animation for field calculation.
10/27/14 Began editing website, calculated magnetic field along x-axis due to bar magnet at one point. Need to transform into function for calculating field along every point on x-axis and extend to three dimensions.
10/20/14 Created scene in VPython in which a bar magnet moves back and forth through a wire loop.
