Induced current with standing magnetic field

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi there,

When you have a loop of wire and you move a bar magnet through it, you induce a current in the wire.

What if you were in a room where there was a magnetic field (not moving) that was stronger than the magnetic field produced by the magnet? If you moved the magnet through the loop in the presence of a magnetic field stronger than that generated by the bar magnet, would a current still be induced in the loop?

Hi Northprairieman! :smile:

Yup! only the change matters, not the proportion. :wink:
