How can induced voltage be increased?
We can increase the voltage by increasing the number of loops in the circuit. The induced voltage in a coil with two loops will be twice that with one loop, and with three loops it will be triple. This is why real motors and generators typically have large numbers of coils.
How do you increase the magnitude of an induced current?
The magnitude of the induced current can be increased by:
- Taking the conductor in the form of a coil of many turns of insulated wire.
- Increasing the strength of the magnetic field used.
- Increasing the rate of change of magnetic flux associated with the coil.
What factors affect the magnitude of an induced voltage?
The size of the voltage can be varied by three factors:
- The size of the magnetic field. The more flux lines there are, the more flux lines there are for the conductor to cut.
- The active length of the conductor.
- The speed at which the conductor passes through the field.
How can magnitude of induced emf be changed?
The magnitude of the induced current depends on the rate of change of magnetic flux or the rate of cutting of the magnetic field lines. => As the speed of the relative motion of the magnet increases the magnitude of the induced current increases.
How do you increase magnitude?
In base 10, the most common numeration scheme worldwide, an increase of one order of magnitude is the same as multiplying a quantity by 10. An increase of two orders of magnitude is the equivalent of multiplying by 100, or 102.
What four factors affect the magnitude of the induced emf in a coil?
What four factors affect the induced emf?
- The induced e.m.f. is proportional to the number of turns in a coil.
- The speed at which the conductor moves through the magnetic field.
- The length of the conductor.
- The rate at which the conductor cuts the magnetic lines of force.
When does the induced voltage of a wire increase?
It’s a different story when the wire is wound into a coil. If the current increases then we get flux build up which induces a voltage of its own. The sign of this induced voltage is always such that the voltage will be positive if the current into the coil increases.
How is the induced current related to the rate of change?
If you are inducing current by moving a magnet close to a wire, ;the current will be larger if you move the magnet quickly than if you move it slowly. The magnitude of the rate of change is proportional to the voltage; the faster the magnetic field changes, the greater the induced current and induced voltage.
How is the rate of change of a magnetic field related to voltage?
The magnitude of the rate of change is proportional to the voltage; the faster the magnetic field changes, the greater the induced current and induced voltage. Note also that Faraday’s law focuses only on the effect of a changing magnetic field on a wire.
Why do you need changing magnetic flux to produce induced voltage?
If you add loops to the wire coil, each loop will contribute equally to E; if you have N coils, the induced voltage will be N times as strong. What this means is that you need to have a changing magnetic flux to produce an induced voltage. If the magnetic flux does not change with time, then there will be no current.
