Electromagnetic induction is the process of creating an electric current in a conductor by changing the magnetic field around it.
When a conductor, such as a wire, is moved through a magnetic field or when the magnetic field around a conductor is changed, it creates a flow of electrons, which results in an electric current.
The equation for finding ΔΦ, or change in magnetic flux, is ΔΦ = B x A x cos(θ), where B is the magnetic field strength, A is the area of the conductor, and θ is the angle between the magnetic field and the normal to the area of the conductor.
ΔΦ is a measure of the change in magnetic flux, which is essential in determining the amount of induced current in a conductor. It is also used to calculate the magnitude and direction of the induced emf (electromotive force).
Electromagnetic induction has many practical applications, including generators, motors, transformers, and induction cooktops. It is also used in wireless charging, electromagnetic braking systems, and metal detectors.
