Hey, I don't understand why emf generated is not the first derivative. For example I have a graph of magnetic flux through a wire against time. I thought that emf generated was the rate of change of flux, however this doesn't work. Emf=-Dflux/Dtime . In this example I have a y=sinx curve for the magnetic flux through wire and the answer is y=-cosx, which is the integral. Thanks in advance(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

# Shouldn't Emf generated be Derivative of Flux?
