This simulation will allow students to generate electricity with a bar magnet. They will discover the physics behind the phenomena by exploring magnets and how you can use them to make a bulb light.

Using this simulation, students will:

  • Identify equipment and conditions that produce induction.
  • Compare and contrast how both a light bulb and voltmeter can be used to show characteristics of the induced current.
  • Predict how the current will change when the conditions are varied.
  • Explain practical applications of Faraday's Law.
  • Explain what causes the induction.
