Magnetic field coupling

  1. Dec 14, 2013 #1
    Can a weak alternating magnetic field from one coil have an effect on another coil that has a stronger alternating magnetic field?

    I ask this because I want to know if magnetic fields follow the same principal as coupling two different voltages together.

    Each effects the other. By carefully choosing their relative angle to each other, you can minimize or maximize the reaction.
