Electromagnetic Induction
MAGNETIC FLUX Section - 5

The magnetic flux through a circuit is a measure of the number of lines of force passing through the circuit
when it is placed in an external magnetic field. Mathematically, we define flux as follows :

B .d A

where B : magnetic field vector A : area vector of loop


If the external field is uniform, then :

B. A
= B A cos where : angle betwen B and A .

Units : The unit of magnetic flux is Weber (Wb).


1 Wb = 1 T m2.

Faradays Laws of Electromagnetic Induction :


According to Faradays Law, whenever the magnetic flux through a circuit changes, an emf is induced in the
circuit.
The magnitude of the induced emf is equal to the rate at which flux changes with time.
d
Magnitude of the induced emf =
dt
If represents the flux through a single turn, and the loop has N turns, then

d
Induced emf = N
dt
This induced emf creates an induced current in the circuit whose magnitude is given as

induced emf 1 d
i
net resistance of circuit R dt
The direction of induced current (and hence that of induced emf) is obtained by Lenzs Law.
Lenzs Law :
According to Lenzs Law, the induced current always opposes the flux change that creates it. In other words,
if the flux decreases, then the induced current tries to support the existing magnetic field and if the flux in-
creases, the induced emf tries to balance the existing magnetic field.

Hence the work done by force applied to the rod is completely converted to heat in the resistance.

r with centre at O, the plane of loop being in the plane of the paper. The loop is now made to rotate with a
constant angular velocity about an axis passing through O and perpendicular to the plane of the paper. The

MOTIONAL EMF Section - 6

When a conductor moves in a magnetic field, it cuts the magnetic lines


of force and an emf is hence induced across its ends which is known as
motional emf.
If a conductor cuts the lines of force in uniform magnetic field, charges
in the conductor experience a force q (v B ) and opposite polarities
are formed by accumulation of negative charges at one end.
In steady state, qE q v B 0

INDUCTANCE Section - 7

Whenever the current through a circuit changes, flux due to that current also changes. An emf is hence induced
and is known as self inducted emf because there is no external field but only the field due to the circuits own
current that is responsible for the flux change. This process is known as self induction.
If i is the current in the circuit, then the flux due to that current is

(a) Growth of Current :
Let us connect a coil of self-induction L with a resistance R across a cell of emf E as shown. If the switch S
is thrown in contact with point 1 at t = 0, current i in the circuit tends to grow. Hence an emf is induced
across the coil in such a direction as to oppose this current as shown.

MUTUAL INDUCTION :
Consider two coils C1 and C2 placed as shown. By varying current i1 in coil C1, we change the flux not only
through C1 but also through coil C2. The change in flux 2 through C2 (due to change in current i1) induces
an emf in the coil C2. This emf is known as mutually induced emf and the process is known as mutual
induction.
2 i1 2 = M i1

where M is called as mutual inductance of the pair of coils. The coil C1 in which i varies is often called
primary coil and the coil C2 in which the emf is induced is called secondary coil.

THINGS TO REMEMBER

[B] Electromagnetic Induction & AC Circuit


1. Magnetic Flux
The magnetic flux through a circuit is a measure of the number of lines of force passing through the circuit
when it is placed in an external magnetic field. Mathematically, we define flux as follows :
B d A
where B : magnetic field vector A : area vector of loop
If the external field is uniform, then :
BA
BA cos where : angle between

2. Faradays Laws of Electromagnetic Induction :


According to Faradays Law, whenever the magnetic flux through a circuit change, an emf is induced in the
circuit. The magnitude of the induced emf is equal to the rate at which flux changes with time.
d
Magnitude of the induced emf
dt
This induced emf creates an induced current in the circuit whose magnitude is given as
induced emf 1 d
i
net resistance of circuit R dt

3. Lens Law :
According to Lenz Law, the induced current always opposes the flux change that creates it. In other words,
if the flux decreases, then the induced current tries to support the existing magnetic field and if the flux
increases, the induced emf tries to balance the existing magnetic field.

4. Induced Charge Flow :


When a current is induced in the circuit due to the flux change, charge flows through the circuit and the
net amount of charge which flows along the circuit is given as :
1 d 1
q idt dt d
R dt R

q and q N for N turns.

If the induced current is kept constant, then heat dissipated i d i

6. Motional EMF
When a conductor moves in a magnetic field, it cuts the
magnetic lines of force and an emf and an emf is hence
induced across its ends which is known as motional emf.
vQ vP motional emf v B dl
(a) As a particular example, let us consider a straight
conducting rod of length l moving with a speed v in
uniform magnetic field B and cutting the lines normally.
(b) Consider a rod of length rotating with a constant angular
velocity about one of its ends. A uniform magnetic
field B normal to the plane of rotation of rod exists.

B 2
Net emf across ends of rod

7. Inductance
Whenever the current through a circuit changes, flux due to that current also change. An emf is hence
induced and is known as self inducted emf because there is no external field but only the field due to the
circuits own current that is responsible for the flux change. This process is known as self induction.
If i is the current in the circuit, then the flux due to that current is
i

9. Self induction of a Coil :


Consider a coil of N turn and area of crossection A carrying a current i.
The length of the coil is l (l A ).

10. RL CIRCUIT :
(a) Let us connect a coil of self-induction L with a resistance R across a
cell of emf E as shown. If the switch S is thrown in contact with
point 1 at t = 0, current i in the circuit tends to grow.
E
i (t )
R

1 e Rt / L
The current grows exponentially with time and tends to attain the
steady state value E/R.
The time after which current has grown upto almost 63% of steady
state value is known as time constant .
L E 1 E
Here and i ( ) 1 0.63
R R e R

11. Decay of Current :


Let i0 be the steady state current in the coil and the switch at that
instant is thrown in the contact with point w so that there is no cell in
the circuit.
The current, hence tends to decrease and an emf is induced across
L to support this current.
i i0 e Rt / L
The current decays exponentially with time.

12. Mutual Induction


Consider two coils C1 and C2 placed as shown. By varying current i 1 in coil C 1, but also through coil
C 2 . The change in flux 2 through C 2 (due to change in current i 1 ) induces an emf in the coil C 2 . This
emf is known as mutually induced emf and the process is known as mutual induction.
2 i1 M i1

where M is called as mutual inductance of the pair of coils. The coil C 1 in which i varies is often called

primary coil and the coil C 2 in which the emf is induced is called secondary coil.

The mutual inductance is maximum when the coils are wound up on the same axis. It is minimum when the
axes of coils are normal to each other.
