Lenz's Law and Magnetic Flux

s gives rise to a current whose magnetic field opposes the original change in flux. This is known a Lenz's law. Let us apply it to the case of relative motion between a magnet and a coil. The changing ... To oppose this upward increase, the field produced by the induced current must point downward. Thus Lenz's law tells us that the current must move by the use of the use of the right hand rule. If the ...

e amount of current is invoked.Our next conclusion has to deal with a combonation of theories being Lenz's lawand induction. Now we know from above that as we thrust the N end of the magnet intothe co ... thisshows us is that there is conservation of energy here. Conservation of energy is a mainpart of Lenz's law. The reason we can say that this is conservation of energy is becausewhen a charge was in ...
