Class 10 Physics Magnetic Effects of Electric Current Faraday Experiment

Faraday's Experiment-1

  • Take a wire, a bar magnet and a galvanometer
  • Move the magnet towards the coil of wire.
  • The galvanometer moves to indicate a current in the wire.
  • When the direction of the magnet is reversed, the current reverses (indicated by the galvanometer needle swaying in the opposite direction)
  • When the speed of movement of the magnet changes, the galvanometer deflects faster.
  • Conclusion : Moving a magnet towards a coil induces a current in the coil whose direction and magnitude is given by the galvanometer.
