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 highschool?


Try to make the answer in kind of highschool terms.

The law does include the induction. The new, induced, magnetic flux mentioned by you is always opposed to the change in the original varying magnetic flux.
