Description

Generate electricity with a bar magnet! Discover the physics behind the phenomena by exploring magnets and how you can use them to make a bulb light.

Sample Learning Goals

  • Identify equipment and conditions that produce induction
  • Compare and contrast how both a light bulb and voltmeter can be used to show characteristics of the induced current
  • Predict how the current will change when the conditions are varied.
  • Explain practical applications of Faraday's Law
  • Explain what is the cause of the induction
