Faraday's Law[edit]

The magnitude induced EMF through a loop of conducting material is equal to the magnitude of the time derivative rate of change of the magnetic flux through that loop.

Lenz's Law[edit]

The polarity of the induced EMF is such that oppose the changes/current that causes it.

Magnetic Field Strength[edit]

Magnetic Field Strength is defined as the force on one metre of wire carrying a current of one amp at right angles to the magnetic field. Magnetic Field Strength is also called flux density and is measured in teslas, T.
