1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In science class, we are supposed to explain how a generator works and functions. However, we have to incorporate coulomb's law in our explanation. 2. Relevant equations F=kQ1Q2/r^2<-- coulomb's law 3. The attempt at a solution How I understood it was that a generator consists of a permanent magnet and a solenoid. The solenoid is spinning, which causes the magnetic flux to constantly change. This will cause electromagnetic induction to occur, which generates electromotive force or voltage in the solenoid. Electromotive force is the measurement of energy that causes current to flow in a circuit. It can also be seen as pressure on the electrons, or a “push”. In a generator, when voltage is induced in the solenoid, a difference of electrical potential energy will occur. The force between these two charges can be calculated by Coulombs law, which states that opposite charges attract while similar charges repel. The greater the electrical difference, the greater the force that’s generated. Thus, this will cause the electrons to move in a certain way and it will create current. is that train of thought correct? I'm not so sure if it is scientifically correct. Please help. Thanks so much!
