Item Picture
written by Michael Davidson
This java simulation illustrates magnetic induction in a wire coil. The user can move a magnet in and out along the axis of a coil while a galvanometer shows the current induced in the coil. The deflection depends on the speed at which the coil moves.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
