1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data When putting a magnet into a solenoid, under what conditions is a current generated? 3. The attempt at a solution In order for a current to be generated, the magnet needed to be moving as it passed through the solenoid. This is due to Faraday’s law, which states that an electric current can only be induced in a circuit through a changing magnetic field. By pushing the magnet through the coil of wire, the magnetic field is altered and a current is subsequently induced (also known as electromagnetic induction). Is this a correct explanation, or is there something more I should add? I can't help but feel like the answer is super short, but I'm not sure if there's anything else I'm missing. Thank you all so much!
