This interactive tutorial offers explanations of magnetic inductance, Faraday's experiments, and Lenz's Law. Several simulations illustrate the principles of magnetic fields, Faraday's Law, self-inductance effects, and applications of inductance. The text describes the physics illustrated by the simulations.

Inductance is a property of an electric circuit in which a changing magnetic field creates an electromotive force in that circuit or in a nearby circuit. This interactive tutorial for beginning physics students offers comprehensive explanations of magnetic inductance, including sections on Faraday's experiments and Lenz's Law. Five java simulations illustrate Faraday's Law, self-inductance effects, and patterns of magnetic field lines.
