electromagnetic induction

it uses the movement to produce a current. Generators use this effect to produce electricity.

if a wire or coil of wire cuts through the lines of a force of a magnetic field a potential difference is induced between the ends of the wire. If the wire is part of a complete circuit current will be INDUCED.

moving a magnet into the coil induces a current in one direction, and then to move the current in the opposite direction, you move the…
