What is Induced magnetic field: Definition and 20 Discussions

In classical electromagnetism, magnetization is the vector field that expresses the density of permanent or induced magnetic dipole moments in a magnetic material. Movement within this field is described by direction and is either Axial or Diametric. The origin of the magnetic moments responsible for magnetization can be either microscopic electric currents resulting from the motion of electrons in atoms, or the spin of the electrons or the nuclei. Net magnetization results from the response of a material to an external magnetic field. Paramagnetic materials have a weak induced magnetization in a magnetic field, which disappears when the magnetic field is removed. Ferromagnetic and ferrimagnetic materials have strong magnetization in a magnetic field, and can be magnetized to have magnetization in the absence of an external field, becoming a permanent magnet. Magnetization is not necessarily uniform within a material, but may vary between different points. Magnetization also describes how a material responds to an applied magnetic field as well as the way the material changes the magnetic field, and can be used to calculate the forces that result from those interactions. It can be compared to electric polarization, which is the measure of the corresponding response of a material to an electric field in electrostatics. Physicists and engineers usually define magnetization as the quantity of magnetic moment per unit volume.
It is represented by a pseudovector M.

    Induced Magnetic Field: Moving Arbitrary Conductors in Nonuniform Fields

    If I have some arbitrary conductor moving through a (nonuniform) magnetic field \mathbf{B}(\mathbf{r}), would the induced field in the frame of the conductor be something like: \mathbf{B}_{IND}(\mathbf{r}) = T \mathbf{B}(\mathbf{r}) where T is some diagonal matrix whose entries are related to...

    Why is this loop pushed downwards by the magnetic field?

    Homework Statement 2. Homework Equations FB = ∫I ds×B The Attempt at a Solution My first guess was that it would not move at all. I understand that there is an induced magnetic field in the opposite direction but wouldn't the induced field produce a current counterclockwise, which, since...

    What is induced magnetic field?

    What is emf in the coil? As far as I know about emf is that it is potential difference between two terminals of a source but what if it is induced in coil by changing flux linkage. What exactly happen when emf is induced?

    Faraday-Lenz Law: Self-Induction in Magnetic Fields

    A varying magnetic flux causes an induced voltage (according to Faraday-Lenz law) that generates a current that generates a magnetic field that generates another magnetic flux in the same circuit. Does the Faraday-Lenz law include this self induction? Or are they giving us a simplification in...

    I Lab experiment: hysteresis disappears, reappears and then disappears again. How?

    Hi people, In my college laboratory we were assigned an experiment to measure the hysteresis curves of a certain ferromagnetic material at different temperatures. Sounds simple, right? Well, the block of Monel 400 we chose did something weird. We cooled it down to about -200°C and set about to...

    Lenz's Law applied to a non-circuit conductor?

    I was reading through my College Physics text, and it talked about how NASA once swung a 20km long conductor through the Earth's magnetic field and setup a 3500V potential difference along the wire. I understand that there's no conventional current in that wire, it's not a circuit. But for a...

    Can Induced EMF Be Greater Than Actual EMF and Create Opposing Currents?

    If the induced emf = -d(phi)/dt that is the rate at which the flux through a body is increasing, can the induced current ever be more than the actual current so as to oppose the field created? Because the rate at which the flux through a body is increasing can be greater than the flux it...

    Strength of induced magnetic field inside an inductor

    I am trying to make a crude coil gun. I remember that if I run current through a coil of wire, it generates a magnetic field according to the right hand rule. Will the inductance of the coil of wire greatly affect the strength of the magnetic field, or is it mainly due to the strength of the...
