Air core Coils vs. Metal core coils
Hi, I have a quick question. I was just wondering which type of coil is best for inducing electricity. If I pass a magnet over one end of the coil, would a metal core help more current to be induced or would an air coil be better?

Since the metal core helps increase the flux density, and the magnetic fields will decrease in strength exponentially with distance, the metal core seems the logical choice. A metal core is used in transformers where the entire purpose is to properly induce a current in the secondary coil based on the magnetic field induced in the core.
