Induction Coils with Battery

PIRA DCS: 5K-10.30

Purpose
Demonstrates Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction: A changing magnetic flux produces and electromotive force (EMF):
Ɛ = - N ΔΦB/Δt
Description
Primary and secondary coils are arranged so that a changing current in the primary coil leads to an induced emf in the second.
