The Law: The direction of the induced current creates an induced magnetic field that opposes the motion of the inducing magnetic field. Application: When the north pole of a magnet goes INTO a solenoid, the opening where the magnet is entering from becomes South. As it exits, the same opening becomes N. So what I understand is that electrons will move in order to oppose the intruding magnetic field in order to cancel it out? Is that correct? And in the application, how does creating a south pole cancel out the intruding north pole? And vice-versa? Someone before directed me to a great java applet and diagrams to explain ostred and faraday's principles. Those would be helpful if you know of any. I need to build a motor and knowing how one works would be nice before I make it.
