Animation: Electrical induction 3

The interactive animation illustrates the principle of electromagnetic induction using the example of a rotating magnet.

You can zoom in and out the rectangles in the animation with a mouse click or double click. In the following screenshot only the 3D model is shown.

Screenshot of an animation illustrating how electrical energy is generated from a rotational movement.

The animation shows how an electric voltage is induced by rotary motion.

A rod magnet rotates in the interior of the conductor loop shown. Inside the conductor loop the electrons are symbolized by blue dads.

The electrons move through the conductor loop. The orientation and strength of the magnetic field depends on how many electrons are deflected. You have the highest voltage when the field lines of the magnetic field move precisely at a right angle through the conductor loop.

Double-click on the large content window to display the model in a two-dimensional view.
